Hydrologic Modeling, Remote Sensing
Robyn is a student in the joint doctoral program in geography at UCSB/SDSU. She is a a physical geographer with a background in remote sensing and environmental modeling. Her research interests include conceptual rainfall runoff modeling of river discharge in Mediterranean-type ecosystems, low flow predictions for water management in semi-arid regions, and regionalization techniques for predicting discharge in ungauged catchments.
Her current research involves ensemble modeling, a new approach to regionalization which incorporates a suite of model parameters and alternative model structures to produce a weighted prediction of flow. Her other research interests include multicriteria optimization techniques, quantifying data and model uncertainty in model predictions, incorporating remotely sensed data in hydrologic modeling studies, land use/land cover change, and global climate change.
Her technical interests include image processing and spatial statistics.
