BIO

Professor Zhang is a professor at School of Engineering and Built Environment. Before joining Griffith University, Professor Zhang worked at Department of Civil Engineering and Tropical Marine Science Institute, National University of Singapore. Her research interests are primarily in the fields of water resource engineering (flooding, river sediment transport, water quality and dynamics in lakes and ponds and groundwater flow) and the coastal/ocean dynamics (circulations, wave dynamics, mixing processes, wave-structure-soil interactions). Professor Zhang employs a variety of techniques such as analytical, experimental, numerical and artificial intelligent methods to obtain the theoretical understanding of the research problems and apply them to engineering practices. She has strong national and international collaboration on research in water and coastal engineering, and close links with Government agencies and local consultancy. She is currently a member of the College of Experts, Australian Research Council.
