Dr Xiaogang ShiInternational Lecturer
I am currently working as a lecturer (assistant professor) in the Lancaster Environment Centre at Lancaster University (LU). Prior to joining LU, I worked as a research scientist in the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia and a lecturer in Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) in China. In 2013, I completed my Ph.D. in hydrology from the University of Washington. Then, I was awarded the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) postdoctoral fellowship and worked at Environment Canada. In addition, I have more than five-year consulting experience in hydrology & water resources.
My research interests have been focused on land surface hydrologic model development, the analysis and modeling of hydrological extremes, hydrological forecasting, groundwater and surface-water interactions, snow and permafrost hydrology, and coupled modeling of land-atmosphere interactions in the context of climate variability and change by using remote sensing data, reanalysis products and in situ observations, as well as model outputs.
My main teaching includes:
- module convener for Catchment Hydrology
- module convener for Hydrology: Water in the Environment
- module convener for Natural Hazards
