Chunyu Dong Ph.D.
Dr. Chunyu Dong has a research background in snow hydrology and ecohydrology. His research seeks to understand the impacts of climate change on the water cycle and terrestrial ecosystems at different scales. Multiple methods have been applied to his studies, e.g. remote sensing/GIS, hydrological modeling, field observations, and hydrogeochemical analysis. He obtained a Ph.D. in physical geography at Heidelberg University in 2016. Then he joined the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) as a postdoctoral scholar.
