My research interests include the effect of land use change on water resources and how global change affects the benefits we derive from nature.
At Stanford I work as a hydrologist with the Natural Capital Project, focusing on the development of water models and their application to hydrological services assessments. I led the development of the nutrient and sediment retention models, and contributed to ecosystem services assessments both at the global scale and in regional studies in India, Colombia, Brazil, and the US. I also developed a particular interest in characterizing uncertainties associated with the use of decision-support tools for conservation projects.
Prior to joining the Natural Capital Project, I worked as an environmental engineer in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I then enrolled in a PhD program at Monash University, Australia, in the field of integrated urban water management. My PhD research involved environmental monitoring and modeling work, provided practical insights into the role of stormwater management techniques in urban catchments.
