Dr. Safeeq's research involves studying how the complex interactions between climate, vegetation, soil, and geology control and modulate critical zone processes related to water. The goal of my research is to identify key hydrologic controls crucial for quantifying and predicting the impacts of climate change on future water supply, which can in turn help to develop science-based, targeted land management and restoration strategies for sustaining future water supply and the environment.
