Water Management ＆ Policy
My researches mainly include two aspects. One is history of hydro technology of China, such as irrigation projects, artificial canals, Rivers’ levee and water resources from ancient to now, together with their technology and management. The other is Water Management and policy of comtenporary China and other countries especially western countries as America. I also research water culture.
My present research interests focus on relationship between water projects and centralization both in history and present time especially to those large projects or projects with large scale. Another is comparative research of water management and policy in different countries especially between western developed countries and P. R. of China.
