Position

Associate Professor
School of the Environment

Biography

I am originally from China. After having seven-year postgraduate studies in USA, I joined Flinders University in 2006. My Masters study was on virus fate and transport in saturated porous media. My PhD study was on mountain block hydrology and mountain front recharge. One year postdoctoral research was on application of remote sensing in hydrology. Currently I am working as a Senior Lecturer in the School of the Environment, and Chief Investigator with the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training. My research interests lie in the fields of hydrometeorology, terrestrial ecohydrology, and hydrology (e.g., groundwater recharge).

Teaching interests

The best way to learn science is to do science. In addition to normal lectures and labs, I encourage students to do small projects in which they can apply the knowledge and skills.

Topic Lecturer:

Research expertise

  • Mountain block recharge
  • Soil-plant-atmosphere continuum
  • Spatial characterisation of climate variables
  • Urban heat island
  • Water contaminant remediation

Research interests

My research interests are mostly focused on water resource and environmental issues that are related to the hydrometeorological and hydrological processes occurring from the interface of land surface and atmosphere, through soil and vegetation, to groundwater table.

  • Terrestrial ecohydrology, particularly on plant water use, environmental stress, drought tolerance, and water use efficiency.
  • Spatial and temporal analysis of climate variables, in the context of climate variability and changes, and topographic influence
  • Evapotranspiration measurement, modelling and remote sensing
  • Environmental tracers, including chloride, water and carbon isotopes in the soil (groundwater)-vegetation-atmosphere continuum.
  • Groundwater recharge estimation, particularly in mountainous areas, and with land cover changes
  • Urban climate, Adelaide urban heat island, summer heat mitigation, and energy consumption
  • Permeable reactive barriers: surfactant modified zeolite, microbial pathoghens, and heavy metals
