Research Interests

My current research is revising the rainfall coefficients used for drainage design in Texas. I am updating the values in the intensity-duration-frequency equation used by the Texas Department of Transportation (and many of the metropolitan areas), and building a web-based software tool to facilitate the estimation of rainfall intensity for infrastructure design.
