Yongxuan is a PhD student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Tufts University, USA. The research presented in the poster is aimed to develop representative hydrologic indicators that best characterize alteration caused by regulation of streamflow in a river to facilitate flow management. Yongxuan’s academic interest is applying integrated water resources management to improve livelihood in developing countries. She is currently conducting her PhD research on environmental flows in the context of small reservoirs in Ghana.
