Postdoctoral Research Associate

Environmental Change Institute

Yue is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the OPSIS group, specialising in Infrastructure Risk Analysis. Her role focuses mainly on the Horizon 2020 project, where she collaborates with colleagues from seven prestigious European institutions, focusing on multi-hazard infrastructure risk assessment for climate adaptation (MIRACA). Additionally, she is involved in the Data & Analytics Facility for National Infrastructure (DAFNI) project, aiming to enhance the long-term infrastructure planning in the UK.

Her research pursuits are centred around developing decision-support methods for sustainable and climate-resilient infrastructure development. Her work involves intricate examinations of interdependencies across multiple sectors encompassing water, energy, transportation and telecom, with a focus on understanding the risks posed by climate change and the ensuing propagation of infrastructure failures. Her particular interest is in understanding complex interactions among human, infrastructure, and the environment, exploring their profound impacts on diverse socioeconomic aspects within the broader social-ecosystem.

Prior to her current role, Yue completed her PhD in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Her doctoral research particularly focused on modelling and optimising the integration of decentralised water technologies into urban networks, contributing significantly to water security and energy conservation. Her prior academic achievement also includes an MSc in Geo-information Science from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, which has equipped her with spatial thinking & reasoning and extensive experience in spatial data analysis & modelling.
