Research/Special Interests

Dr. Cho's research focuses on hydrologic modeling and the application of geographic information systems (GIS) to water resources engineering. These research interests encompass a broad range of topics in computational hydrology including statistical methods of predicting extreme hydrologic events such as floods and droughts, model optimization, uncertainty estimation in the model parameters and outputs, leveraging vast geospatial information available online for hydrologic simulation and forecasting, etc.

He has been part of the Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (GRASS) GIS development team since 2000 and has special interests in developing and contributing geospatial modules to the Open Source community.
