Dr Guangtao Fu

Dr Guangtao Fu is a lecturer in Water and Environmental Engineering at the University of Exeter. He holds a PhD in Water Resources Engineering from Dalian University of Technology, and a BEng and Master in Hydraulic Engineering from Shandong University. Before joining the University of Exeter, he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Bristol and Imperial College London. His research focuses on conducting fundamental and applied research at the interface between water systems and decision making by combining simulation, optimization, and information technologies to tackle water and environmental issues under climate change and urbanization. In particular, he is interested in the potential impacts of climate change on urban water systems, and the development of mitigate and adaptation measures using hydroinformatics tools. He has managed and contributed to several EPSRC and EU FP research projects. He is a fellow of UK HEA and a member of IWA and IAHS.
