Yibing su

Su is in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering where she studies hydrometeorology. Her research focuses on addressing the question of how hard it can rain at time durations critical to urban watersheds. Su develops hydrometeorological procedures to analyze the physical mechanisms and variables producing extreme short-duration rainfall and gain insight on the upper physical bound to rainfall intensity. A specific focus has been paid on Extratropical Cyclone systems given their destructive potential in producing extreme rainfall and flooding.
