Personal profile

Research interests

I am a computational hydrologist primarily interested in how models can be used as abstractions of the world around us to predict both quality and quantity of physical hydrologic processes. I’m particularly intrigued by both where (in the landscape) and when (under what climatic conditions) models of hydrologic processes succeed and fail, and how we define success and failure for watershed modeling applications. My research primarily relies on computational simulations of models ranging from simple, conceptual representations to fully distributed and physically based frameworks to interrogate the relationships between water quality and quantity, and how this varies across different landscapes.
