Dr. Liang Emlyn Yang (杨亮, 字也明) is a geographer studying on human-environment relations with focus on long-term climate adaptation and resilience. Household survey, stakeholder network analysis, agent-based model and geo-information systems are often applied in the studies. Emlyn is currently working on urbanization, flood risks and resilience building in Southeast Asia and China. 


Dr. Yang is the P.I. of ERC Starting Grant 2021: STORIES - Spatial-Temporal Dynamics of Flood Resilience. >>more
