Education Background

Ying Lu works in the institute of international rivers and eco-security, Yunnan University as associate professor. He got B.S. in Southwest Forestry University in 2001 and got his M.S.& PhD in Yunnan University during 2003 to 2009.

Professional Experience

Sep 2009 - Present: Associate Professor, AIRC, Yunnan University, focus on hydro-ecology, hydrological process modeling

Projects (As Leader):

l   Hydrological responses on land use and climate change in mountainous watershed (funded by Yunnan University, 2009-2011, 2009D21Q)

l   Hydrological responses and regional variations on LUCC in downstream of Lancang River Basin (funded by Yunnan key lab of international rivers and transboundary eco-security, 2010-2012, 200903)

l   Response and regional differences of hydrological processes to land use and climate change in the lower reaches of Lancang River (funded by National Science Fund of China, 2009-2012)

l   Water temperature distribution research under the impact of large dam in Lancang River (funded by National Science Fund of China, 2013-2017, 41361094)

l   Study on Hydropower driving effect of water temperature change in outlying river reaches of Lancang River (funded by Yunnan Provincial Science Fund, 2017-2020, 2017FA021)
