My research interests include: understanding, through observations and modelling how the interaction between vegetation species and erosion/deposition processes leads to observed intertidal landforms, vegetation patterns, and biodiversity; development of an observational and a modelling understanding of marsh bio-geomorphic structures responses to changes in surface temperature and CO2 concentration; understanding and modelling plant root biomass allocation strategies as a function of hydrologic regimes; hydrological extreme events under a changing climate; eco-hydrological study and modelling of mosquito dynamics and responses to hydro-meteorological forcings
