I am a hydroclimatologist working both in the Department of Hydrology and Water Resources and the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Arizona. For the past years my work has focused on future climate scenarios for the Southwestern United States and how these will impact the hydrology of the region. I use both statistical methods and the regional climate model WRF to downscale future climate projections from global coupled climate models to the regional scale. I also have great interest in land-atmosphere interactions, particularly the contribution of local evapotranspiration to precipitation within a region, more commonly referred to as precipitation recycling. While my work has mostly relied on numerical modeling, one of my current projects uses water vapor isotopes to study the partitioning between evaporation and transpiration in different ecologic systems.
