Dr Xiaogang Shi

Formerly at Lancaster University


I am currently working as a lecturer (assistant professor) in the Lancaster Environment Centre at Lancaster University (LU). Prior to joining LU, I worked as a research scientist in the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia and a lecturer in Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) in China. In 2013, I completed my Ph.D. in hydrology from the University of Washington. Then, I was awarded the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) postdoctoral fellowship and worked at Environment Canada. In addition, I have more than five-year consulting experience in hydrology & water resources.

Research Interests

My research interests have been focused on land surface hydrologic model development, the analysis and modeling of hydrological extremes, hydrological forecasting, groundwater and surface-water interactions, snow and permafrost hydrology, and coupled modeling of land-atmosphere interactions in the context of climate variability and change by using remote sensing data, reanalysis products and in situ observations, as well as model outputs.

Current Teaching

My main teaching includes:

  • module convener for Catchment Hydrology
  • module convener for Hydrology: Water in the Environment
  • module convener for Natural Hazards

Contact me

I am keen to work with talented and enthusiastic students, who have a strong quantitative background in my broad research areas. If you are interested, please contact me to discuss potential ideas and funding opportunities with a copy of your current CV. China CSC PhD applicants/visitors are always welcome!
