AREAS OF EXPERTISE
Professor Zhang Qi is a research professor at Nanjing Institute of Geography and Limnology (CAS) since 2003. In 2014, he was appointed as the vice-director of Key Laboratory of Watershed Geographic Sciences of Chinese Academy of Sciences. His major research interests include catchment hydrological processes and lake hydrodynamic processes and responses to climate change and human activities. In recent years, as a leading scientist in the division of hydrology and lake-catchment interactions, he has been conducting research on lake-catchment hydrological and hydrodynamic processes modelling, impacts of climate change and human activities on the water balance and water quality of lakes, effects of large hydraulic engineering (e.g. the Three Gorges Dam) on lake-river hydraulic relationship and lake hydrology for the middle reaches of the Yangtze River. He developed a spatially distributed hydrological model, WATLAC, for surface and subsurface water flow modelling for large scale lake catchments. The model can be used as an effective tool to assess the hydrological effects of catchment land use changes and climate change on lake hydrology. Prof. Zhang well established research collaboration with international organizations including CSIRO Land and Water Australia, Flinders University and University of Queensland of Australia, Christian-Albrechts-Universitat zu Kiel and Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research of Germany.
His expertises include:
Catchment hydrology and distributed hydrological modelling
Lake hydrology and hydrodynamics
Groundwater flow modelling
