Interest

The implication of deep learning/machine learning framework in the satellite images.

Understanding the relationship between diseases and climate. Developed a forecast model for the pre-epidemic outbreak of rotavirus and cholera.

Currently, modeling climate extremes and their probabilistic future. Worked on the integration of climate extremes with hydrologic models and developed novel bias-correction methods for climate extremes.

Develop large scale to small scale hydrologic models for rainfall forecast, flash flood forecast, even disease forecast.
