Zhao-Yin Wang (Oct. 1951, Shandong, China) is professor of the Department of Hydraulic Engineering of Tsinghua University and the Chairman of the Advisory Council of the International Research and Training Center on Erosion and Sedimentation (UNESCO). He is president of the World Association for Sedimentation and Erosion Research (WASER). He was elected in 2011 and 2013 as the vice president of IAHR and the chairman of the division of Hydro-environment of IAHR. Dr. Wang was the chief editor of the “International Journal of Sediment Research” from 1996 to 2013. He was one of the initiators of the IAHR journal “International Journal of River Basin Management”. 
He is associate editor of “Journal of Environmental Informatics”. He is a member of the steering committee of UNESCO International Sedimentation Initiative.

His research interests include sediment transportation, river ecology and integrated river
management. He has published 183 papers in international journals and international conferences, and published 190 papers in Chinese journals. He is the author of 7 books on sedimentation, integrated river management and ecology. Recently, Springer Verlag and Tsinghua Press published the book “River dynamics and integrated river management” by
Zhaoyin Wang, Steven Melching, Joseph Lee. His scientific achievements include the theory of hyperconcentrated flow, vegetation-erosion dynamics, stream ecology and eco-sedimentation, integrated river management, landslide dams and debris flows. In recognition of Zhaoyin Wang’s scientific contributions, Chinese government awarded him Second National Science and Technology Progress Prize (vegetation-erosion dynamics), the Ministry of Education awarded him the First Science Prize “Modern Theory of Sediment Transportation” and Second Science Prize “Hyperconcentrated flow”; the Ministry of Water Resources of China awarded him the First Science and Technology Progress Prize “Physical model study on sedimentation in the fluctuating backwater region of the Three Gorges Project” and Second Science and Technology Progress Prize “Training and water resources management of the Yellow River delta”. The American Society of Civil Engineers awarded him the 2011 Hans Albert Einstein Award. The award citation reads: ”For his unique contributions for understanding of hyperconcentrated flows, debris flows, watershed vegetation-erosion dynamics, stream ecology and restoration, and integrated river basin management.” In
selecting him for this award the selection committee particularly noted significant advances that are currently being used to address the complex environmental erosion and sedimentation in China and all over the world.    

Dr. Wang has been invited and delivered 21 keynote lectures and invited lectures at international conferences, including IAHR congresses and symposiums, International Symposia on River Sedimentation, and International Symposium on Eco-hydraulics.
