This work will have a focus on the Congo Basin, with collaboration with the Congo Basin Water Resources Research Centre (CRREBaC) at the University of Kinshasa, DR Congo.

My particular interests centre on hydrodynamic models, geostatistics and remote sensing. In my PhD I worked on an intermediate scale flood model of the Mekong Delta, quantifying river-floodplain connectivity and the simulation of plausible versions of global digital elevation models (DEM) in floodplains.
