A research paper that I led has been recently submitted to Water Resources Research journal. This paper is about introducing two useful theories that can be used to re-frame the modeling of two well-known sociohydrologic phenomena (the levee effect and pendulum swing).
Title: From Place-Based Modeling Toward General Theories of Sociohydrology: Lessons from Social-ecological Systems
Authors: David J. Yu, Heejun Chang, Taylor Davis, Vicken Hillis, Landon Marston, Woisok Oh, Murugesu Sivapalan, Timothy Waring
Landon Marston, one of the co-authors, is my close collaborator and we have worked together for Purdue’s seed grant program as well as NSF HDBE. It was also an honor to have the paper co-authored by Professor Murugesu Sivapalan (who is the father of socio-hydrology).
[Seed grant award]
Also, I received a small seed grant Purdue’s Center for the Environment as PI (in collaboration with Dr. BC Min at Purdue CAIT)
[Invited talks and workshop]
Invited to and attended a sociohydrology workshop hosted by Tsinghua Univ. in Beijing, China. Interacted with Professor Murugesu Sivapalan and Gunther Bloeshl. On the way back, I stopped over in S. Korea and gave seminars at the Department of Geography, Seoul National University and the Department of Urban Planning & Engineering, Yonsei University.
