 Research Interests

My research brings together state-of-the-art climate, hydrology, agriculture, water quality, land use, socioeconomics, and energy systems models to improve our fundamental understanding of water-related natural and human systems and to identify cost-effective solutions to meet the water, energy, and food demands under changing climate, particularly in
(1) Evapotranspiration modeling and irrigation decision support tools;
(2) Water-Environment-Energy-Food Nexus;
(3) Integrated watershed management modeling;
(4) Machine learning application in agriculture;
(5) Climate change impacts on crop production and evaluation of adaptation strategies.
