Haoyu Wei’s research work will focus on stormwater quality issues from the prospect of evaluating interactions between stormwater from different sources and the use of conventional urban drainage system (e.g., gully pots). Concerns such as gully pot sediments remobilization during heavy rainfall events, and the associated issue of diffuse pollution have been selected as the research starting points. From a long-term perspective, approaches to systematically plan new and/or retrofit gully pots to minimize their impact on stormwater quality, and how gully pots maintenance operations should be practically planned will also be addressed. His research work directly contributes to meeting the objectives of the innovative and ambitious DRIZZLE Centre of Excellence, a multi-stakeholder project focused on developing and delivering a visionary and sustainable urban drainage future.

Haoyu joined the Urban Water Engineering team at LTU in February 2019. Previously, Haoyu accomplished his Bachelor’s education in Wuhan University, China, with a degree on Water Quality Science and Technology. He achieved his Master’s degree in Water Resources Engineering at Lund University, Sweden. In his master’s thesis work, he built up a three-dimensional conceptual model of a contaminated site in Alingsås, Sweden. This thesis work serves as a part of the “MIRACHL” project in the Division of Engineering Geology, Lund University.
