Research Interests

My research interests include the linkage between urban land cover and the status of urban stream. The recent project that I am involved in investigated the impact of land cover changes on urban water chemistry using high resolution map across Metro Vancouver Region. We developed several useful landscape indicators that could be used to monitor water chemistry and biotic response. We are now extending the work to examine benthic invertebrate data and add additional water quality monitoring sites.

I am also interested in examining the long-term relationships between urban land cover and water quality, and seeking potential green infrastructure options that would benefit stormwater management under future urban expansion scenarios.
