My research is within the broad areas of the quantitative assessment and modeling of flood risk, surface water dynamics and water resources, and the potential impacts of climate change. Much of my work utilizes computational models parameterized and validated primarily by remote sensing and data collected during extensive field campaigns, which I have conducted for study sites across England, the Caribbean and the highly dynamic environments of the Amazon. Currently, my research is focused in addressing the interactions between water and climate change, using modeling and observations ranging from the short reach-scale (such as in projects developed in England and the Caribbean to assess flood risk and community vulnerability) to scales of representation an order of magnitude larger (such as those in the Amazon which assess wetland dynamics).
