Area of research: Eco-hydrology; ecological restoration; watershed management; surface hydrology; water balance in dryland areas; climate change adaptation and mitigation; land use land cover assessment; GIS and RS application to hydrology, forestry and land resources assessment; hillside management; environmental entrepreneurship; green economy; carbon forestry and landscaping.
Research focus: The study on climate change impact on the eco-hydrology of Geba Catchment, Tekez Basin in Ethiopia assesses and quantifies the changes (weather/climate) that will be anticipated, and their future potential impacts on the water and biota resources of the basin with respect to the changing climate. It investigates future expected anthropogenic activities which, consequently, indicate a potential for measurable changes in the conditions that control hydrologic processes and, the biotic composition and structures.
