Academic Profile

Dr Shasha Han is a postdoctoral researcher in the Water and Climate Extremes research group, working with Dr Louise Slater in the research areas of hydroclimatic extremes and flood non-stationarity. Shasha aims to investigate changes in flooding over time in the context of changing climate and land cover and assess the associated uncertainty. Her research interests cover non-stationarity prediction and projection, climate and land cover change impacts, uncertainty analysis, hydrologic modelling, probabilistic flood forecasting, and floodplain mapping.

Shasha received her MSc from Beijing Normal University, China, in 2014 and completed her PhD at McMaster University, Canada, in 2019. Her PhD thesis focuses on probabilistic flood forecasting using advanced Bayesian techniques. Prior to joining the University of Oxford, Shasha worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in Water Resources and Hydroclimatic Modelling lab at McMaster University, focusing on the development of a Canadian adaptive flood forecasting and early warning system and probabilistic floodplain mapping under climate change.
