Dr. Fang is a full professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Auburn University, Alabama, and has worked at Auburn University since August 2007. Dr. Fang has twelve-year research and teaching experience in the Department of Civil Engineering at Lamar University (Texas State University System), Texas (1995 – 2007 from an assistant professor to a full professor). Dr. Fang received his Ph.D. and M.S. from the University of Minnesota in 1994 and 1991, and B.S. in Hydraulic Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1987.
Dr. Fang was named a Diplomate Water Resources Engineer (D.WRE) certified by the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers in 2007. He was the vice chair of the ASCE EWRI task committee “Urbanization Effects for Groundwater” from 2008 to 2010. Dr. Fang is active as a member of ASCE EWRI TMDL Analysis and Modeling Task Committee since August 2013. Dr. Fang served as a Board of Director for the Chinese American Water Resources Association from 2007 to 2012 and a member for the Floodplain Management Committee of the American Water Resources Association (AWRA) since 2003.
Dr. Fang has published 54 peer-reviewed journal articles, 4 book chapters, and more than 50 conference proceeding papers in the area of environmental hydrodynamics, ecological modeling, and water resources engineering (hydraulics and hydrology). He was an Associate Editor in surface water hydrology (2007 – 2012) and water quality modeling (2012 – 2013) for the Journal of the American Water Resources Association (JAWRA), and serves as Associate Editor (2013 – present) for the British Journal of Environment & Climate Change (BJECC).
Dr. Fang’s most significant contribution in the environmental engineering is to develop and apply the regional dissolved oxygen model in lakes and investigate impacts of climate warming on water quality and fish habitat in small lake s over the contiguous United States.
