Abstract
Dr Hsu’s research covers remote sensing hydrology and hydrologic modeling/prediction. He is active in the area of remote sensing precipitation and data-model assimilation applications. His general research activities include:

• Improving hydrologic prediction and water resources management using artificial intelligence and machine learning approaches
• Applying Bayesian Monte Carlo methods for hydrologic prediction and uncertainty analysis
• Developing multi-model ensemble techniques in the hydrologic prediction
• Integrating multiple satellite information for global precipitation measurement
• Applying satellite data for hydrologic applications (floods, droughts, and water resources monitoring)
• Studying the uncertainty of remote sensing and in-situ observations and their impact to hydrologic predictions
