My research attempts to understand how anthropogenic modifications of the natural landscape impact various soil-related ecosystem services using a range of earth observation and geospatial data science techniques. Specifically, I am interested in studying the effects of land management and climate change on soil organic carbon, soil hydrology, water resources, and crop yield at local to regional scales.
