Excessive loads of pollution entering water bodies have resulted in dramatic degradation of water quality worldwide. My primary area of research is focused on water quality modeling and management for understanding the processes causing this crisis and how to alleviate their negative impacts. Specifically, I have developed a comprehensive model to simulate the impact of anthropogenic activities on hydrologic and water quality processes. I also developed a total uncertainty assessment framework for quantifying the water quality benefits of conservation practices under uncertainty. Application of this framework in water quality policy making is anticipated to secure meeting water quality improvement goals.
