We work in watersheds around the world where the interplay between climate, development, ecosystems, and society has led to complex water problems requiring multidisciplinary research approaches
Mekong River basin in south east Asia
We study the interactions between hydrological alterations and floodplain ecosystems in the Mekong River Basin.
Application of the FOR-POWER framework in the Tonle Sap watershed. Funded by MacArthur Foundation (2016-2018)
