I'm a hydrologist most interested in cimate variability impact on water system using modeling or statistical approaches. My research works have been mostly done through NOAA RISA (Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments) program in Colorado (WWA, Western Water Assessment) and South Carolina (CISA, Integrated Sciences and Assessments). These programs have been excellent opportunity for me to communicate with fellow scientists in neighboring areas. I really enjoy the inter-disciplinary nature of water science. I had a chance to focus on teaching for 2 years at Valparaiso University in Northwest Indiana with broad range of engineering classes from basic level to senior level subjects before I joined my current institution.
