Ecohydrology and groundwater
My interest is to investigate climate impacts on ecosystem function and agriculture. My research concerns water and carbon exchanges over the interfaces between plant, soil and atmosphere. My projects aim to set up a modelling tool, which integrates crop models and data from weather stations, field measurements, and remote sensing. The crop modelling software will be developed using model uncertainty analysis, and machine learning method. This research will enable industry partners to conduct spatial analysis to inform farmers on site-specific crop production. In turn, primary producers will be empowered to adapt to climate change through appropriate agronomic and on-site management practices. This digital farming will increase water and nutrient use efficiencies from farmlands. This work will benefit our society in food production, soil and water management, and adaptation to environmental change.
