Lijing Wang

Assistant Professor

*** I am recruiting graduate students to join my lab in Fall 2024. ***

I’m a geostatistician and hydrogeologist specializing in integrating hydrologic modeling and multiscale datasets, such as geophysical surveys and in-situ hydrologic measurements. My research explores the impacts of various uncertain factors, from bedrock to canopy to climate disturbances, on watersheds and aquifers. I also develop machine learning and Bayesian inference methods to calibrate hydrologic models and quantify their uncertainty. Additionally, I’m committed to teaching data science to geoscientists, showcased in our new textbook, “Data Science for the Geosciences,” published by Cambridge University Press.
