Bo Wang is a postdoctoral scholar in the Northern Change Research Laboratory. His research focuses on understanding morphologic changes of alluvial rivers. At Brown, Bo is studying processes of river anabranching, river avulsion, and fluvial geomorphology in northern environments using various remote sensing datasets, with particular focus on the SWOT (Surface Water and Ocean Topography) satellite mission. Prior to Brown, Bo earned a Ph.D. in geography and a master’s degree in hydrology from Louisiana State University (LSU), where he explored the effects of river engineering on sediment transport, channel bar formation, and riverbed deformation in the Lower Mississippi River and Atchafalaya River. Before coming to the U.S. in 2012, Bo received bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the China University of Geosciences.
