My research is focused on hydrological and geomorphological processes, and the interactions between them. The current research subjects include drainage basins and fluvial evolutions, surface runoff, sediment transport,  landslides and cliff evolution, and detection of climatic and hydrological changes and trends. Remotely sensed datasets, digital elevation models (DEMs), and 2D hydraulic models are significant in my research. Therefore, I am interested in novel geospatial analysis methods to detect patterns, processes, and their controlling factors on terrestrial and submarine surfaces.
