My research interests focus on characterizing complexity and quantifying uncertainty in environmental systems with the goal of improving our understanding of these systems and our ability to forecast their variability. My current research interests focus on water quality monitoring and contaminant source identification, use of remote sensing data for earth system characterization, and atmospheric greenhouse gas emission and sequestration estimation. The common theme of my research is the development and application of statistical and geostatistical data fusion methods for optimizing the use of limited in situ and remote sensing environmental data. I am also interested in the environmental policy, economic and legal impact and applicability of environmental research.
