Xiaorong Li

Xiaorong Li is a postdoctoral researcher at the School of Ocean Sciences, Bangor University. She has a degree in Environmental Engineering and a PhD that was themed around environmental impact prediction of tidal stream energy exploitation. Her research focuses on coastal processes under the influence of climate change and anthropogenic activities, primarily through the application of numerical models.

She has extensive experience in modelling coastal processes including tides, currents, waves, turbulence and sediment transport. She has developed models to study how these processes respond to energy extraction, habitat erosion and management, and climate shift. She also has some experience modelling flooding and erosion in river catchments and their economic impact. She is interested in exploring interactions between biological and physical processes in coastal and estuarine environments with inputs from the upstream catchments.
