My research (student driven) at University of Guelph conducts various engineering and scientific investigations to understand complex interactions of anthropogenic drivers on the water resources and ecosystems, water availability and quality using geospatial, hydrological modeling and field research. Our group also investigates the interlinkages between Climate-water-food nexus and develop a holistic, well planned sustainable management strategies to provide solutions to emerging water and food crisis. Ultimately, the goal is to provide
sustainable solutions to solve complex watershed-scale management problems under changing climate and landuse so that current and future generations will benefit. Some of the broader research interests/activities include but not limited to are:
At Texas A&M University (As a post doctoral research associate in SWAT model group), research involved investigating several national and international projects funded by prestigious United States national agencies such as USDA-NIFA, USGS, NRCS, CEAP, USAID and global industries such as Shell International. Some selected studies include (1) Assessing flow, sediment and nutrient loads using high resolution watershed modeling in West Lake Erie basin (2) Assessing the impact of BMPs in Eagle Creek watershed within West Lake Erie basin and investigating water quantity and quality in an experimental field (3) Simulation and prediction of decadal climate impacts on water and agriculture in Missouri River basin (4) Estimating water stress at county level in Midwestern and southern United States (5) Evaluating the impact of BMPs in Richland Chambers watershed of Texas (6) Estimating current and future water availability in Tigris-Euphrates river basin (7) Evaluating the fate and future of Al-hawiezh wetlands in Iraq.
