My research focuses on hydrometeorological events that happen at the atmosphere-land surface interface. The characteristics and consequences of these events are closely related with both atmospheric dynamics/thermodynamics and terrestrial hydrology.

Currently, I am working on a NASA funded project examining Atmospheric Rivers and their future changes. My specific goal is to build the connections between local hydrological consequences (e.g. precipitation, flooding risks and their impacts on local hydroclimate) that directly affect people's lives with multi-scale features of Atmospheric Rivers, which include global-scale Rossby Wave behavior, synoptic-scale midlatitude cyclone systems, mesoscale orographic effects and local-scale land surface conditions.
