I am an Assistant Project Scientist in the Sierra Nevada Research Institute at the University of California, Merced.

Research Interests

My research examines the linkages and feedbacks between hydrology, vegetation and disturbance with a focus on how these linkages vary under different climate regimes and management practices. I am particularly interested in understanding how wildfire and forest mortality lead to changes in forest composition/structure and the implication of these changes on water resources. My work involves examining complex coupled-systems using sophisticated (and some not so sophisticated) mechanistic and statistical models, as well as remote sensing and geospatial data.
