Doctoral Researcher
Uncertainties in low-resolution water quality data and aquatic ecosystem resilience model


  • Conserving and restoring resilience of freshwater ecosystem
  • Coupling of ecological and hydrological knowledge
  • Uncertainty in data and models


"We humans in the modern age do not well appreciate what ecosystems offer through their capabilities to sustain themselves and adapt to changes. I seek to understand how biodiversity affects such capabilities of the ecosystems and to explore uncertainty in explaining relevant environmental phenomena. In pursuing these re-searches, IRI THESys provides me with such." Hoseung Jung

Hoseung Jung (hosŋ ʒəŋ, 정호승) has been working as a doctoral researcher at IRI THESys since January of 2017. He studied environmental engineering and management in an Erasmus Mundus master’s program at Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg, Germany and Aalborg University, Denmark. He wrote his master’s thesis at Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB), Berlin, which focused on dynamics of nitrogen in river sediment. After graduating from his master’s degree, he worked as a researcher at Korea Environment Institute on a project for developing a national water policy.

Hoseung works with Prof. Dr. Tobias Krüger in the research group “Transformations and uncertainties of land-water systems”. As his doctoral research, he studies Bayesian inference techniques for low-resolution water quality data, develops an aquatic ecosystem resilience model, and analyses uncertainty from the data and model.
