SHUO WANG

I received my Bachelor’s degree (Hons) in Information Technology from Monash University, Australia in 2008, and then I received my Master’s degree (2011) and Ph.D. (2015) in Environmental Systems Engineering from the University of Regina, Canada. Prior to joining PolyU, I was a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Geosciences at Texas Tech University, USA.

The overarching purpose of my research group is to explore climate change impacts on natural and human systems and to advance understanding of hydroclimate dynamics. Specifically, my research focuses on the following four areas: 1) producing high-resolution climate change projections through dynamical downscaling, 2) quantifying uncertainties and their temporal and spatial interactions in hydroclimatic projections, 3) exploring extreme weather events caused by human-induced climate change and their impacts on the environment, society and human health, and 4) developing systems analysis approaches for addressing environmental and water resources issues in a changing climate.

I am always looking for research staff and students working in the interdisciplinary field of hydroclimatology. Please contact me at shuo.s.wang@polyu.edu.hk with your CV and a brief description of your research interest for inquiry.
