My research group has a multidisciplinary approach and focuses on understanding the processes that govern natural and anthropogenic hazards. These studies incorporate big data sources (Remote Sensing data and in-situ/field measurements) to understand the processes.

Snow and Glacier Studies (Dynamics and Mass Balance), Micro-Climate Modeling, Tectonic Geomorphology, Landslide Susceptibility, Ocean-Atmospheric Interactions, Liquefaction Potential Evaluation, and Subsurface Investigation using Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) are my primary research areas.
