Nana Wang

Nana Wang is a Ph.D. student at the University of Geneva’s Institute for Environmental Sciences (ISE). A current focus is Karst soil erosion under changing climate conditions: insights from terrestrial monitoring and dendrogeomorphology.

Her research interests predominant focus on: 1) Investigate soil erosion processes and mechanisms both macro and micro-scale serving for optimal erosion prediction and control; 2) Evaluate the impact of global change (both natural and anthropogenic) on water and soil loss, supporting erosion risk assessment and reasonable soil and water conservation policies making.
