Areas of expertise

  • Water Science and Engineering


Jae hun worked as a hydropower engineer until 2020, acknowledging demands in clean water supply, energy crisis and the environmental impacts. His interests in solving water management issues and learning the latest knowledges in the water sector led to study in the U.K. and enrolled in Msc in Environmental water management at Cranfield in 2016. With some more working experiences in the hydropower sector thereafter, studying the circumstantial evidence of climate change on rivers, his interest grew on impacts on climate change on hydrological environment. 

Current activities

Jae hun is studying for a Phd in climate change impacts on suspended sediment dynamics in rivers at School of Water, Energy and Environment (SWEE). The continental scale (U.S.) study will identify statistically significant factors in catchment characteristics in hydrological environment, providing guidance on fluvial sediment transport. Objectives are to identify process-based evidence that affected suspended sediment dynamics and non stationary periodic changes in discharge and suspended sediment itself. Having this fortuante chance to delve into the water environment associated with climate, he continues working to improve understanding and modeling of impact of climate change on the magnitude and dynamics of suspended sediment concentrations in rivers .
