Ying Yi

Ying Yi is a visiting PhD student in Heidelberg University. Her research is mainly focused on snow cover changes and their hydrological effects. She received a master’s degree in Physical Geography from Yunnan University in June 2021, and continued to study for a doctoral degree at Yunnan University. In October 2023, she got the funding from China Scholarship Council (CSC) for a 2-years study in the research group of Hydrology and Climatology at the Institute of Geography, Heidelberg University. In her doctoral thesis, she mainly studies the characteristics, variability, and future trends of snowmelt-induced floods in high-altitude mountain areas under an increasingly changing environment.
