Former ENWAT Doctoral Student Dr.-Ing. Yi He on Sabbatical at IWS
Affiliation: University of East Anglea UEA, UK
Dr. He has a background in hydrological science and engineering with strong analytical and programming skills. Her research competences include hydrological and hydrodynamic model calibration and uncertainty estimation, catchment classification, prediction in ungauged catchments, extreme value statistics, precipitation downscaling, hydro-meteorological forecasts, and impact assessment on catchment water resources.
In 2004 she obtained her MSc degree in our WAREM program, followed by her Dr.-Ing. degree in our ENWAT doctoral program in 2008. Both, her MSc thesis 'Assessment of Predictive Uncertainty associated with the Identification of Model Parameters of a Conceptual Rainfall-Runoff Model' and her dissertation 'Application of a Non-parametric Classification Scheme to Catchment Hydrology' were supervised by Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Dr.-Ing. habil. András Bárdossy. She was supported by an IPSWaT-scholarship of the BMBF.
Until 2010 she worked at King’s College in London as a research associate in the NERC funded project “HydroClimate” within the Flood Risk from Extreme Events Programme. The project evaluated impacts of a changing climate on flood inundation for the Upper Severn Catchment in England. She was responsible for setting up and running the hydrological and hydraulic models, and estimating modelling uncertainties and future flood risk.
In 2010, she joined the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of East Anglia as a lecturer in Hydrology and Climate Change Research.
From January until June 2019 she is on sabbatical and performing research at the Department of Geology and Hydrology at the IWS with Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Dr.-Ing. habil. András Bárdossy.
On Wednesday February, 6th she will give a talk on her current research during the ENWAT doctoral seminar.
