Mr Jiajun Li


  • Doctoral Researcher

Research groups and centres

Research and expertise

My research interests include Hydrological Processes, Vegetated Flow & Rating Uncertainties, Flood Risk Management, Data Science and Geomorphology.

Summary of expertise

  • Matlab
  • Statistical and numerical modelling
  • Rating curve assessment


I contribute to the learning and teaching activities across the School, including:

  • Doctoral seminars

  • Demonstrating hydraulic lab sessions for undergraduate studies


I was a student at the University of Liverpool, where I obtained a Master of Engineering (Honours) degree in Civil Engineering. I completed two large projects during my study in Liverpool which involved looking at numerically modelling flood risks in UK catchments.

Following my MEng degree, I became a doctoral research student at Loughborough University as a member of the Water Research Group. My current PhD research focuses on the rating uncertainties in streams, more specifically the potential effect of factors like submerged vegetation on the rating relationship of streams.

I am currently a PGR Rep as well as secretary of the School Researcher Hub Committee.
