Research Interests

My research focuses on remote sensing, hydrology, meteorology, precipitation error modeling, extreme weather risk modeling, and data assimilation using Artificial Intelligence (AI) application. My research interest also demonstrates AI based algorithm in diverse tundra landscapes and mapping application in the pan-Arctic along with climate-change prediction, permafrost, and the modeling of hydro-meteorological processes.
