Dr. Faith Ka Shun Chan specialised in sustainable flood risk management, climate adaptations and urban resilience on Asian coastal megacities. He is currently funded by the Chinese National Research Council (NSFC) as Principal Investigator on the microplastics and its impacts on urban rivers, and he is also involved in two international research projects as a Researcher in the Blue-Green Cities Consortium (funded by ESPRC and British Academy from the UK research council) and co-investigating in the flood risk and commercial properties (funded by RICS) project. He is also a Principal Investigator on three municipal-funded projects to investigate the surface water quality, typhoon-enhanced flood risk and the development of a “Sponge City” pilot study in Ningbo. He has published more than 30 publications in top tier international peer-reviewed journals such as Journal of Cleaner Production, Land Use Policy, Journal of Flood Risk Management, Nature Ecology and Evolution, Applied Geography, Nature Hazards and International Journal of Water Resources Management, book chapters and magazines.
