Research and expertise
I am a research associate working on the development of a near-real-time flood forecasting and flood risk management platform to demonstrate a new methodology and tool for assessing, analysing, monitoring and forecasting the state of flood risk at higher spatial and temporal resolutions.
My research interests cover real-time flood forecasting, non-point source pollutants, interactive dynamics of flooding and floating debris, and flood risk assessment.
Current research activity
Work on UKRI-funded project PYRAMID: To further develop the in-house flood modelling software HiPIMS for predicting at high resolution urban flood hydrodynamics interacting with floating debris; integrate the model with data streams from different sources to support dynamic near-real-time flood risk assessment.
Recently completed research projects
The State Major Project of Water Pollution Control and Management(2017ZX07603-001): my work was to develop modelling tools to simulate the full soil and runoff process of Nitrogen and Phosphorus both as immobile soil pools and as fractions dissolved in soil water

I am a Research Associate working on a UKRI-funded project, PYRAMID.
I graduated from Hohai University, China in 2012 with a BEng in Harbour, Coastal and Engineering. And then I enrolled in the direct-PhD programme of Hohai University in 2017.
My research background includes Hydrodynamic Modelling, Non-point Source pollutants, floating debris, and flood risk assessment.
