Chuen-Fa Ni received his Ph.D. at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Michigan State University, MI, USA, in 2005. He is a licensed Hydraulic Engineer with industrial working experience from 1999 to 2001. He joined the Graduate Institute of Applied Geology, National Central University (NCU), in 2007 and became a full professor at NCU in 2016. NCU awarded him the Distinguished Professor Award in 2020. He has published over 70 refereed papers, including book chapters, technical notes, and discussions. His research interests include numerical modeling of flow and contaminant transport in porous media and fractured rocks, stochastic approaches for uncertainty analyses and inverse modeling, laboratory and field experiments to characterize hydrogeological properties cross-scale, seawater intrusion and reactive transport in coastal aquifers, land subsidence monitoring and coupled hydro-mechanical modeling, and development of web platforms for groundwater modeling and data analysis.
