Edward PARK

Edward is an assistant professor in Physical Geography at NIE and Asian School of the Environment (courtesy appointment), and a Principal Investigator (PI) at the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS), Nanyang Technological University, where he is developing a river research program titled Tropical Rivers in the Anthropocene. His research investigates the hydrogeomorphic processes and wetland hydrosedimentary dynamics. Edward’s work is strongly based on geospatial technologies, hydrological modelling, and statistical methods, in addition to traditional fieldworks in geomorphology. He aims to develop a geospatial database on hydrological variables, sediment information, and morphometric parameters for analysis of interactions between natural hazards, human impacts, river dynamics, and ecosystems, and to contribute to the discussion and implementation of sustainable management of large rivers. He has won several prestigious awards such as National Science Foundation’s DDRIG and AAG’s Gordon Reds Wolman award. He is currently a Principal Investigator (PI) of four research projects including the “Environmental Impacts in the Mekong Delta (MOE Tier2)”. His research has been published in several prestigious journals including Remote Sensing of Environment, Water Resources Research, Science of the Total Environment, Journal of Hydrology, and Nature. 

He is currently the national representative for the International Association for Geomorphologists (IAG) and the executive committee member of the Association of Singapore Teachers (AST). He is also an editorial board member of Science of the Total Environment.
