The research focused on the impacts of landscape disturbance on runoff response and fluvial dynamics, the impact of environmental changes on the course and consequences of floods and changes of hydromorphological status of streams. Application of the hydroinformatic approaches and advanced field monitoring techniques; in particular hydrodynamic and machine learning models, automated sensor networks, applications of the UAVs (drones) and remote sensing for non-invasive surveying of hydrological processes. Applied research in risk processes modeling.
