Research Interests

I am interested in the hydrological impacts caused by a storm system called atmospheric river (AR). ARs can cause extreme precipitation, flooding, landslides, storm surge and other disasters when they make landfall. It is projected that these hazards will likely intensify and become more frequent under climate change. My Master’s thesis research at UNC-Chapel Hill pertained to the climate variability and predictability of AR activity over the North Atlantic. Now I am working with Prof. Daniel Horton to investigate the hydrological extremes associated with both historical and future ARs in the west coast of US using a powerful model – the WRF-Hydro.
