Key Research Interests
- Land use/management impacts on catchment hydrological processes
- Vegetation-soil-water linkages with respect to water storage, transmission and release
- Flood and drought management
- River regulation impacts on in-stream flows and aquatic ecology of rivers
- Integrating tracer (stable water isotopes, water quality, temperature) analyses with hydrometric monitoring and other (cosmic ray, geophysical) sensing and modelling techniques
