Biography

My research interest is in investigating how scientific developments and societal situations are engaged with one another with a focus on water resources management. Multidirectional global changes such as climate, land use, urbanization and population have brought changes to water scarcity and accessibility. My focus is on how environmental policies along with global change should be made in achieving sustainability of society. My current research is studying urban infrastructure vulnerability and resilience to cliamte change.
