Mr Jiren Xu

  • Research Associate (Interdisciplinary Studies)

Biography

Dr Jiren Xu joined the University of Glasgow’s School of Interdisciplinary Studies as Research Associate since August 2019. Currently, He is mainly working on research titled ‘River basins as 'living laboratories' for achieving sustainable development goals across national and sub-national scales’.

Jiren has completed PhD (2019) in Physical Geography from the University of Leeds where he specialised in global peatland water resources provision. Also, he has achieved the MSc (2015) and BSc (2012) in Land Resources Management from China University of Mining and Technology.

As a transdisciplinary researcher, Jiren specialises in the interactions among ecosystem services, land use and land cover change, catchment hydrology, and sustainable development. Particularly, Jiren has produced the first high-quality global peatland map - PEATMAP, which is one of the top 1% ESI Highly cited papers. He also quantified the volume of drinking water derived by peatland all around the world. The research results have been featured on several media, such as The Times, Yorkshire Post.
