In my career I have developed a passion for all aspects of hydrology and flooding. Having contributed to research projects on the vulnerability of flooding in Vietnam, I am acutely aware of the devastating impact of floods. I am committed to improving our understanding of historical changes in floods, with the belief that it is critical for adapting to floods in the future.

Impacts from global floods have increased over time but IPCC note that the attribution of floods is an unresolved issue, whether it is due to changes in the flood hazard, the exposure, the vulnerability or a mixture of causes. My aim is to resolve this question, and through my PhD I will address the role of flood hazards.

As part of my research, I have compiled 30,000+ gauges from 12 streamflow databases to produce the Global Streamflow Indices and Metadata (GSIM) archive, which has become the most comprehensive streamflow observation database at the global scale. I plan to utilize this database to explore the relationships between land-use, rainfall and streamflow using empirical techniques as well as validating land-surface models (via ISIMIP).
