Professor Peng Gao, Department of Geography and Environment, Syracuse University (New-York, USA).
Peng Gao is a short-stay resident researcher hosted at the EVS laboratory and supported by H2O'Lyon.

Professor Gao is a physical geographer trained in fluvial geomorphology. His research has been involved in hillslope processes (landslide initiation and prediction, rill and gully erosion under overland flows), sediment transport (bed load and suspended sediment load) in river channels and agricultural drainage system, watershed modeling for hydrological and sediment-transport processes, as well as morphological structure of longitudinal profiles of mountain rivers. Since 2015, his research interest has been focusing on two broad areas: 
  • River dynamics and environment changes
  • Geospatial-based urban studies
