Overview

Current research interests include investigating the effect of climate and land-use changes on water security. In particular, the associated effects on urban stormwater quantity and quality. The main goal is to design optimal smart sustainable solutions to control runoff at source within small urban catchments. Obtaining and analyzing real-time hydrological big data from existing urban stormwater management practices will play a key role in improving the planning and design of sustainable integrated systems of low impact development practices.
