Dr Wee Ho Lim
Honorary Research Associate
Wee Ho is a Research Fellow in Global Water Security at the Environmental Change Institute. He investigates global hydrological extremes and variability under climate change, aiming to assist policies/strategies for risk reduction. His research interests include environmental physics, climate change science, hydrology, water resources and mathematical modelling.
Wee Ho was trained as a civil engineer at the Nanyang Technological University (Singapore; 2002-2006) and completed a PhD at The Australian National University (Australia; 2008-2013). During his PhD training, Wee Ho published a book called "An Atlas of the Global Water Cycle: Based on the IPCC AR4 models" with Michael Roderick. Prior to joining the ECI, he spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at Kanae Laboratory at the Tokyo Institute of Technology (Japan), to investigate global flood risk under climate and socioeconomic changes.
