Prof Liang has research expertise in computational hydraulics. He develops high-performance numerical models to predict different natural hazards, e.g. floods, tsunamis, debris flows and landslides, and assess their impact and risk.
Dr Xiaodong Ming
Dr Ming’s research focuses on hydrodynamic modelling and multi-hazard risk analysis. He developed a multi-hazard risk assessment framework for compound floods and a real-time flood forecasting system based on a high-performance hydrodynamic model.
Miss Xue Tong
Miss Tong works on the modelling and mechanism analysis of the catchment-scale dynamic process of non-point source pollutants.
Dr Yan Xiong
Dr Yan Xiong is a research fellow in Hohai University (China). Her research is focused on the development of high-resolution models to predict the dynamics of floating debris under extreme hydraulic conditions and assess building damage.
Miss Kaicui Chen
Kaicui’s research focuses on the construction of Digital Twin for urban flooding and applications of Artificial Intelligence in flood modelling.
Ms Yunsong Cui
Yunsong is a PhD student in Hohai University (China). She is interested in developing high-resolution 2D models to simulate flooding and hydraulic structures.
Mr Wenyuan Dong
Wenyuan is a PhD student at Dalian University of Technology (China). His research focuses on the rainfall-runoff modelling and nonlinearity in the hydrological response of natural watersheds.
Miss Kristine Thorkildsen Jarsve
Kristine works on landscape evolution modelling in the Bailong River Area in Gansu, China. Her research interests include mass movements in rock, soil, and snow.
Miss Jinghua Jiang
