报 告 人：Professor Tom Dijkstra
报告题目：Living with Dynamic Landscapes: landslide processes and impacts
Tom Dijkstra, Visiting Professor of Lanzhou University, studied at Utrecht University, the Netherlands, taking Physical Geography with Geomorphology, Quaternary Geology and Soil Science as specialisations. In 1989, he moved to the UK after being offered a research position as part of a large EU-funded project and this supported his PhD on landslide mechanisms in Chinese loess. He worked in academia (inc. University of Leicester, University of London, Utrecht University, University of Sussex, Loughborough University and Coventry University) mainly in Civil Engineering Departments, focusing on geotechnical engineering. Since 2012, he is an engineering geologist/geomorphologist at the British Geological Survey specialising in climate change effects on slope instability processes in natural and engineered (transport infrastructure) slopes, geohazards and landslide hazard forecasting. He is on the Editorial boards of the “Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology” and "Engineering Geology" and is a Fellow of the Geological Society, London. He has more than 100 publications on the subjects of Engineering Geology and Geomorphology.
