I am a hydrologist and an engineer. My research utilizes computer modeling and data analysis to define and support sustainable management policies and practices related to water resources and climate change adaptation.  Broad topics of interest include:

  • quantifying the impacts of climate change on hydroclimatology in the Northeast
  • evaluating feasible climate change adaptation strategies for New England communities
  • monitoring the performance of river restoration activities
  • using economic models for promoting sustainable water use

My recent, current, on-going research projects include:

  • Monitoring the restoration of Red Brook, Wareham, MA
  • Biomonitoring of Eel River Headwaters Restoration Project, Plymouth, MA
  • Incorporating environmental costs and benefits in dam removal decision-making in Massachusetts
  • Promoting sustainable irrigation water use through benefits trading on the Yellow River, China
  • Quantifying the environmental impacts of expanded agricultural¬†irrigation in southeastern Turkey
  • Simulating the impacts of overextraction and climate change on groundwater in Northwest India
  • Evaluating the future of water resources in Northwest India: impacts of overextraction and climate change on glacier-fed rivers in Punjab state, India
  • Adapting to climate change in the Northeastern U.S. focusing on stormwater and coastal flooding impacts.
