Research Interests

I am an engineer interested in managing water resources for a changing climate. My research focused on updating the drought management plan of the Susquehanna River Basin to incorporate current forecasting technologies and knowledge.


  • Developing a basin-wide framework for drought forecasting and planning in the Chesapeake Bay region
  • Integrating weather and climate reforecasts into reservoir operations management: a case study in Snohomish County, WA
