Honorary Research Associate

Academic Profile

Dr Jiabo Yin is an Honorary Research Associate at the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford. His current research interests cover broad fields relevant with Earth Sciences, such as the physical mechanisms behind water and carbon cycle under climate change as well as their implications for our Earth system. He is currently investigating the multiscale nature of the continental hydrologic and carbon cycle, with observations (remote sensing and in situ), hydrology-climate models and machine learning. In particular, his works focus on understanding the physical mechanisms of weather-related hazards (e.g., drought, floods, storms, heatwaves and compound events) as well as their socioeconomic and ecological impacts, under both current and future climates.

Dr Jiabo Yin also holds a tenure position as an Associate Professor at Wuhan University. During 2017-2018, he studied in Columbia University as a visiting student, during which he is supervised by Prof Pierre Gentine. After obtaining his Ph.D. in hydrology at Wuhan University, he worked as an Associate Researcher (tenure in track) at Wuhan University since July 2019. In January 2022, he was approved the Associate Professor (tenure) in Department of Hydrology, Wuhan University. His research has been published in journals such as Nature Sustainability, Nature Communications, Geophysical Research Letters, Water Resources Research, Earth's Future, Hydrology and Earth System Sciences, Science China Earth Sciences, Journal of Hydrology, Journal of Hydrometeorology, Environmental Research Letters and Chinese Science Bulletin.
