Soil physics and hydrology

Yusong combines numerical modelling with small and large-scale measurement, and inverse modelling to improve understanding and predictability of the soil and plant continuum. He engages in the iterative research cycle including hypothesis formulation, experimental design, data collection, and model-data analysis. His research interest includes but is not limited to: (i) water flow and solute transport processes in the soil and plant continuum, (ii) numerical modelling, (iii) characterization and measurement of the unsaturated soil hydraulic properties, (iv) preferential flow in microporous soils and fractured rock, (v) transport of colloids, viruses, bacteria, and nanoparticles.

Before joining UQ, Dr Wang worked at CSIRO and universities in the US. Dr Yusong Wang obtained BSc degree in Environmental Chemistry from Nanjing University and completed his PhD at University of California, Riverside.
