Brief Introduction

I have been engaged in the study and research of hydrology and water resources since 2005. My main research interests are: (1) Research on hydrological process and hydrological models;( 2) Study on numerical simulation and disaster mechanism of urban floods; (3) Study on the water-related problems of the construction and development of sponge cities;(4) Study on regional drought characteristics;(5) Observation and Study on water, heat and carbon flux of typical ecosystems. I presided over and completed 1 post doctoral foundation project, 1 post doctoral special fund project, 1 open fund project of National Key Laboratory, 1 youth fund project of National Natural Science Foundation, and was selected into the "Beiyang scholar · Young backbone teacher program" of Tianjin University in 2019. Also, I presided over 1 youth project of Tianjin Science and technology foundation,  and 3 horizontal projects, with a cumulative scientific research fund of nearly 2.5 million yuan. As the technical backbone of the project, I have participated in 1 national key R & D plan project, 1 national major science and technology special project, 3 National Natural Science Foundation projects and more than 10 other horizontal and vertical projects. In 2020, I completed the construction of field observation facilities such as "micro scale evaporation and infiltration observation system", "high-density automatic meteorological monitoring station network of complex terrain", "automatic continuous monitoring station network of soil moisture content" and "land surface ecological flux monitoring vorticity related system", and established the eco-hydrological field scientific observation experimental base of the laboratory. By now, more than 30 papers have been published, including 27 papers in SCI and 4 papers in top journals.
