My doctoral research leverages geophysics and dense time series of satellite imaging radar data to study water conflict and war impacts from space.
In addition to academic research, I collaborate on journalistic and humanitarian investigations at the interface of conflict and environment. My work supporting visual reporting has appeared in outlets like the New York Times, Financial Times, Washington Post, BBC, CNN, Der Spiegel, NPR, the Times, and others.
