Guoyi Han, PhD (Geography), MSc (Environmental Sciences), MA (Human Geography), BSc (Geography), Research Fellow, joined SEI since 2001. Guoyi is the theme co-leader for Managing Environmental Systems.
He specialises in nature-society synthesis in the areas of water resources, human dimensions of environmental change, disaster risk reduction, vulnerability and resilience of coupled human-environment systems, and applications of Geographic Information System (GIS).
His earlier research experience concentrated on watershed management in connection with non-point source water pollution control. Over the years, his research has expanded to include environmental impact assessment, regional environmental planning, risk analysis and hazard management, dynamic nature of vulnerability and resilience of human-environment systems. More recently, he has been focused on mainstreaming natural disaster risk reduction; energy security and climate policy in China; China and its transition, and the broad environmental and social implications of that transition to China and globally.
Prior to joining SEI, he was a Research Programmer for Idrisi GIS at the Clark Labs, Clark University, US (1997-2001), and he was an Assistant Professor at the School of Environment, Beijing Normal University, China (1988-1993).
