Research interests

I am a river scientist interested in capturing the dynamics of fluvial systems using remote sensing techniques. Current post-doctoral research focuses on hydrometeorological hazards in tropical rivers, investigating geomorphic change (i.e., erosion and deposition) and flood risk in the Philippines.
