Research interests:

high-mountain hydrology, glacier and snow dynamics, remote sensing, GIScience, hydrological and ecological modelling.


Current work:

I am currently working on the ecohydrological modelling of the Tarim tributaries, extending the current SWIM model for the arid, glacier and snow-melt dominated catchment. This is as part of the SuMaRiO project under the supervision of Dr Valentina Krysanova at PIK and Dr. Julian Thompson and Prof. Jon French at UCL.
