I'm a PhD candidate in Geophysics. My research is on environmental fluid dynamics, volcanology, groundwater hydrology and natural hazards. Currently I'm working on bridging fluid dynamics of magma in volcanoes with various data to understand the processes in volcanic systems, and combining remote sensing data and in-situ measurements to minitor groudwater storage. I'm also interested in agent-based modeling, numerical modeling related to animation, and applying machine learning to solve real-world environmental problems.
