I use satellites to study Earth’s freshwater resources, often at the global scale. My research group applies a variety of remote sensing data (multispectral, hyperspectral, thermal, radar, lidar) to understand how water and other materials move through rivers, lakes, and wetlands. We also use field methods, computer models, and sensor data to study how these water bodies and their geomorphology are being altered in response to land use and climate change. My work is motivated by a desire to promote the conservation, sustainable management, and understanding of Earth's surface water resources.
