I previously worked as a Project Researcher in Global Hydrodynamics Lab in Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo from Oct 2019 to Aug 2023. In the Global Hydrodynamics Lab, we are working on freshwater dynamics on a global scale using modeling, remote sensing, and model data integration.

My primary research interests are in modeling water on a large scale. Currently, I am working on observing Canadian lakes using the SWOT satellite. Previously, I have been working on data assimilation into hydrodynamic modeling using satellite altimetry data. I am also involved in developing CaMa-Flood hydrodynamic model for a better representation of global fresh water.
A co-authored data description paper was published in Earth System Science Data, Res-CN (Reservoir dataset in China): hydrometeorological time series and landscape attributes across 3254 Chinese reservoirs . In this study, we develop the first database of consist of reservoir-catchment characteristics for 3254 Chinese reservoirs.
A co-authored letter was published in Environmental Research Letters, Increased floodplain inundation in the Amazon since 1980, led by Ayan Santos Fleischmann. This study found that the annual maximum flood in Amazon increased by 23% from 1980.
A Journal paper has been published in Hydrology and Earth System Sciences. Assimilation of transformed water surface elevation to improve river discharge estimation in a continental-scale river, Different methods were investigated to estimate river discharge by assimilating satellite altimetry.
A co-authored paper was published in Water Resources Research, Multivariable Integrated Evaluation of Hydrodynamic Modeling: A Comparison of Performance Considering Different Baseline Topography Data, We developed a new method to integrate multiple variable for objective river model evaluation.
A co-authored paper was published in Remote Sensing of Environment, How much inundation occurs in the Amazon River basin?, led by Ayan Santos Fleischmann. This study compares 29 inundation datasets from remote sensing/hydrological modeling. The intercomparison can be viewed in WebGIS application.
