Research Assistant Professor School of Environmental Science and Engineering   Research Group

My research mainly focuses on improving the simulation, prediction and understanding of complex Earth system using watershed-scale models. I use and design new analytical methods (such as Bayesian analysis, data assimilation, and stochastic sampling) for model calibration and uncertainty analysis, with the goal to improve the theory of both modeling tools and the natural system. Recently, I have developed a new Bayesian analysis framework to jointly account for multiple sources of uncertainties. I have also contributed in developing an ecohydrological model, HEIFLOW, which is a physically-based, three-dimensional distributed model. My responsibility was to develop new ecological modules and couple them with the integrated surface water-groundwater model, GSFLOW. My research will involve high-performance scientific computing to solve the complex modeling problems.
