Home town (country); 出身:
Philippines
Message; メッセージ:
My research interest is on the utilization of numerical models for addressing water-related disasters and risk management in regional and basin scales. I have been working on research in quantifying hazards through dynamic downscaling and hydrological modeling. Recently, I have been interested in flood inundation modeling and using numerical weather prediction (NWP) model for seasonal forecasting purposes.
