Research Interests

I am a Research Assistant Professor in the Global Hydrology Lab working with Tamlin Pavelsky. My research interests lie within the interdisciplinary research fields of ecology and hydrology, which bridge the disciplinary perspectives in understanding the ecohydrological processes and bi-directional interactions and feedbacks at different spatiotemporal scales through integrating multi-source observations and model simulations. For my postdoc research, I will focus on understanding the links of inundation, vegetation, and carbon flux in boreal environments.
