Working within the field of hydrometerology, I aim to develop an improved methodology for estimating probable maximum precipitation and probable maximum flood. My research will utilise WRF-Hydro, a coupled atmospheric hydrological model, and statistical post-processing (including machine learning). The findings will be tested and validated in British Columbia watersheds and if the methods prove fruitful, the developed model will be run under a variety of climate-change scenarios.
