Research Interests

Dan’s current research focuses on the impact of urbanization on local and regional climate, as well as the water cycle. The goal of his research work, including his STEP (Science, Technology and Environmental Policy) project, is to study the potential of urban planning policies to reduce anthropogenic stresses on the urban environment, such as urban heat island effect and modification of water flux, based on a better understanding of the interactions between urban development pattern, the climate system, and the urban water cycle.
