Wenyan Wu

 

Dr Wenyan Wu is a Lecturer in Environmental Hydrology & Water Resources in the Department of Infrastructure Engineering, the University of Melbourne. She has over ten years’ experience across academia and industry.



Dr Wu has a background in environmental modelling and optimisation using numerical methods, with applications in optimal design and operation of water distribution systems and management of water resource systems. She also worked as an Environmental Engineer, when she conducted flood risk assessment and developed flood mitigation strategies with the aid of 2D hydrodynamic models. Her current research focuses on the use of numerical and statistical modelling tools to solve environmental engineering problems, including:
• Compound event analysis (e.g. compound flood)
• Water resource/supply system modelling and optimisation
• Artificial neural networks for environmental modelling
• Ensemble flood forecasting
• Multi-objective optimisation and its applications in decision support

Dr Wu completed her PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering in 2012 at the University of Adelaide on the topic of optimisation of water distribution systems considering economic and environmental impact and reliability. Her thesis received the Dean's Commendation for Doctoral Thesis Excellence.
