Research interests:

My research interests include Earth's observation techniques devoted to study the global water cycle and climate. I am particularly focused on the use of multi-satellite remote sensing observations to study continental hydrology and its interactions with the ocean, the atmosphere and climate variability. I am a member of science teams and projects studying the inter-tropical zone with a special emphasis on the Indian Subcontinent and South American regions. I am a member of the Science Team (ST, 2016-2019) of the NASA-CNES satellite SWOT.
