Researcher Profile:

Yi Hong, PhD, is an Assistant Research Scientist working in the Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR). His research aims to (1) improve understanding of hydrologic process across urban, watershed, and coastal scales; (2) promote modeling approaches to assess and mitigate hazard risks related to extreme events and anthropological activities; and (3) enhance integrated modeling to describe interactions between hydrologic and social systems under climate change.
