Postdoctoral Scholar, Climate and Ecosystem Science Division, LBNL
BIDS-Clean Energy Research Center for Water-Energy Technologies (CERC-WET) Data Science Fellow

Real name: 
Zexuan Xu

Zexuan Xu is a hydrology postdoctoral researcher at Climate & Ecosystem Sciences Division (CESD), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). Before joining Berkeley Lab, Zexuan received his PhD degree in hydrology and groundwater modeling at Florida State University (FSU). His PhD dissertation is “Data analysis and numerical modeling of seawater intrusion through conduit network in a coastal karst aquifer”. As a hydrological modeler, Zexuan is proficient in several watershed and regional scale models for simulating hydrological processes in both subsurface and surface domains. He also has experience in downscaling of global and regional climate models on LBNL’s NERSC supercomputer system. His current research focuses on assessing the accuracy of these models compared to observational data, developing statistical corrections, and providing these inputs to hydrologic models and water resource studies. In BIDS, Zexuan will work on the large-scale data analysis in CERC-WET project. He would like to bring the cutting-edge methodologies and data analysis tools to problems in the earth and environmental sciences.
