Research Summary

Hong’s research passion lies in an important and timely set of topics across different spatial scales.

At the regional and watershed scale, Hong applies computer-based models to facilitate natural resource decision-making, especially as it relates to water. Through agent-based landscape change simulation and hydrological modeling, her most recent regional-scale research investigated the effectiveness of watershed-scale stormwater best management practices, and of alternative urban development patterns, for conserving stream ecosystem health in the context of rapid urbanization and climate change.

At the site scale, Hong is passionate about exploring innovative design approaches to integrating sustainability into urban landscapes. Her current Green Stormwater Infrastructure research focuses on lessons learned on the design, construction, monitoring, and maintenance of Low Impact Development practices across different social and environmental contexts.
