Dr. Xue’s research focuses on environmental engineering simulation and environmental information systems. In environmental engineering simulation aspects, based on CFD, AI and visualization techniques, he developed water and sediment pollution simulation analysis algorithms and water and sediment pollution process control systems. In the area of environmental information system, an integrated platform of environmental model and environment information system were developed for multi-scale comprehensive analysis for water and sediment.
