I am a Ph.D. candidate at Carnegie Mellon University working with Prof. Constantine Samaras. My interests lie at the intersection of climate change, urban development, data analytics and sustainability. My recent work focuses on two complementary aspects of long-term water infrastructure adaptation to climate change. One aims at characterizing observed and future climate change, particularly the uncertainty in future climate projections that is relevant to the optimal performance of existing and design of future infrastructure. The second consists of developing tools that build upon the recognized future climate uncertainty and the specific system’s resilience to make robust adaptation decisions. I mostly use Python and Geographical Information Systems (ArcGIS and QGIS) software for my daily research.
