My research concerns the impacts of climate change on the global hydrological cycle and fresh-water resources, with a focus on extreme events, including droughts and flooding. My main objective is to improve the understanding of historical and current impacts of climate change and global warming on the global hydrological cycle and to utilize this understanding in prediction of future climate conditions. My studies are generally on global and continental scales.

Research Interests: Water Resources Management; Climate Change; Extreme Events; Metaheuristic Optimization.
