Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering's Water Research Centre (WRC)

Ze Jiang is an Early Career Researcher from Water Research Centre at UNSW working in the field of hydro-climatology. His research focuses on the impact of climate change on water cycle, specifically looking at future drought changes under global warming. Ze received his PhD in Water Resource Engineering from UNSW. During his PhD, he developed a very cool method, namely Wavelet System Prediction (WASP), which is able to predict sustained hydro-climatological changes. Ze received his B.Eng in Environmental Engineering from Hohai University, China; he did his Joint M.Sc, named “EuroAquae - HydroInformatics and Water Management” under a partnership of five European universities (in Barcelona, Budapest, Cottbus, Newcastle/UK, and Nice). Before moving to Australia, he also worked in hydrological and crop modelling at Tropical Marine Science Institute of National University of Singapore for two years.
