Qinli Yang, Associate Professor

Dr. Yang is interested in models of complex dynamic systems at an appropriate level of detail for decision support. Her research focuses on hydrology, water resources, flood analysis, environmental remote sensing and data mining. She published more than 20 papers on peer-reviewed international journals and conferences in the fields of water resources and data mining, such as Water Research, Environmental Modelling and software, KDD, ICDM. The findings provide various rapid scientific tools for water resources analysis and assessment, helping water resources managers and planners better understand water bodies and make wiser use of them.
