Dr. Shuai is a groundwater hydrologist with experience in groundwater and surface water interactions, nutrient and contaminant transport, hydrological modeling, and ecohydrology. His recent research has focused on modeling the hydrological and biogeochemical processes from bedrock to canopy top in watersheds under human activities and disturbances. He received his BS and MS in water resources engineering from Wuhan University (China) and received his PhD in hydrogeology from Texas A&M University. Following his PhD he worked as a post-doctoral associate and then as a staff scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory from 2017 to 2022.
