Editor-in-chief/Deputy Editor-in-chief

  HUANG Jiesheng, PhD, a professor at Wuhan University. He currently serves as the Vice Chairman of the China National Committee on Irrigation and Drainage, a member of the Expert Committee of the Northwest Branch of the National Comprehensive Utilization of Saline-Alkali Land Technology Innovation Center, the Deputy Director of the Academic Committee of the Modern Water-saving Irrigation Corps Key Laboratory, the Editor-in-Chief of China Rural Water and Hydropower, and a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Hydraulic Engineering among other positions.
  He mainly engages in research in the fields of water resources engineering planning and management, farmland drainage and water environment, and water-saving irrigation. He has achieved a series of results in the theory and regulation of water and salt movement in farmland. He has led numerous research projects, including Major Programs of National Natural Sciences Foundation of China, the “Eleventh Five-Year” and “Twelfth Five-Year” National Science and Technology Support Program projects, and the “Thirteenth Five-Year” and “Fourteenth Five-Year” National Key Research and Development Program of China, publishing over 280 papers. He has presided over and participated in the drafting of national or industrial standards, such as “Technical Code for Farmland Drainage Project” and “Technical Standard for Renovation of Irrigation Districts”. He has received one National Second-Class Award for Scientific and Technological Progress and six provincial and minister-level scientific and technological awards.

  XU Jianzhong, Deputy Editor-in-Chief, is a second-grade professor at the China Irrigation and Drainage Development Center, recipient of special government allowance of the State Council. His main areas of research include the construction and operation management of large and medium-sized pump stations, rural hydropower projects, pump and pump station-related technologies, and rural water conservancy and hydropower technical standards. He is the Chairman of the Pump and Pump Station Committee of the Chinese Hydraulic Engineering Society. He has led 2 national major scientific research projects, participated in 4, led or participated in over 100 provincial and minister-level projects, led or participated in the revision of 30 standards, authored or co-authored 15 books, published 41 papers, and received one National Second-Class Award for Scientific and Technological Progress, three First-Class provincial and ministerial scientific and technological awards, and three Second-Class awards.

  YANG Jiandong, PhD, a professor at Wuhan University. He currently serves as a member of the Academic Guidance Committee of the State Key Laboratory of Water Resources Engineering and Management, a member of the Academic Committee of the State Key Laboratory of Hydro-Power Equipment, the Deputy Editor-in-Chief of China Rural Water and Hydropower, and a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Hydraulic Engineering.
  His main research areas include the design theory of hydropower station water conveyance and power generation systems, fluid transient flow, pumped storage power stations transition processes and control. He built the first physical model experimental platform for the transition process of hydropower stations (pumped storage power stations), conducting experimental research on mechanisms threatening the safe operation of hydropower stations and their engineering applications. He proposed the theory and methods for the coupled transition process of hydro-mechanical-electrical systems, developed theories for the design of surge chambers in hydropower stations, variable-head high and clear-water tailrace systems design theory, and fluid transient flow theory; developed corresponding refined simulation, hydro-mechanical-electrical, and multi-dimensional coupled computational analysis software; and solved key technical challenges threatening the safe operation of hydropower stations and the stability of the power grid. His achievements have been applied in over 80 large-scale hydropower and pumped storage power stations, including the top 10 largest in China. He has published over 300 academic papers, including more than 140 SCI and EI papers, and authored textbooks and monographs such as “Hydropower Stations”, “Transition Process of Pumped Storage Units”, “Practical Fluid Transient Flow”, and “Transition Process and Control in Hydropower Stations”. He received the National Second-Class Award for Scientific and Technological Progress and the Hubei Province First-Class Prize for Scientific and Technological Progress as the leading contributor.

  KONG Xiangyuan, Deputy Editor-in-Chief, and Deputy Senior Editor, holding a master degree in Hydraulic Engineering from Wuhan University. He has long been engaged in the editorial work of scientific journals in water conservancy, primarily for China Rural Water and Hydropower and Water Saving Irrigation, serving as the full-time Deputy Editor-in-Chief of China Rural Water and Hydropower since 2000. He participated in the editing and publishing of books such as “Economics of Water Conservancy Engineering”, “Compilation of Materials on the Three Gorges Project”, “Atlas of Design for Medium and Large Pumping Stations in Hubei Province”, and has been involved in resettlement investigation work for water conservancy and hydropower projects such as the Three Gorges Water Hub Project and Jiangya Reservoir. He has published more than 15 papers in Acta Editologica and other journals. He has been awarded titles such as “Top Ten Young Editors of Hubei Province” and “Special Contributor to National Excellent Journals”.

  WEI Xiaojing, Deputy Editor-in-Chief, received her master's degree in Hydrology and Water Resources from Wuhan University in 2009. She is currently a member of the Journal Work Committee of the Chinese Hydraulic Engineering Society and a member of the Hubei Province Editology Society for Science Periodicals. Her research focuses on hydrological responses under the context of climate change. She has published 18 papers in her field, including 4 SCI/EI indexed papers and 1 CSSCI paper.
