Associate Professor Edmond Yat-Man LO

Deputy Director, Institute of Catastrophe Risk Management (ICRM)
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

A/P Edmond Lo is currently the Deputy Director of the Institute of Catastrophe Risk Management (ICRM) at NTU, Singapore. He joined NTU in 1996 where he was Head of the Division of Environmental and Water Resources Engineering (2005-08) and Chair of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (2008-2011). A/P Lo’s current research work is in flood risk management for S.E. Asian cities with a particular view of how flood resiliency evolves as cities develop under the influence of growing urbanization and climate change. He co-leading ICRM’s efforts in the CREATE Future Resilient Systems program, a multi-university effort led by ETH Zurich. He is also co-PI in ICRM’s flagship Natural Catastrophe and Data Analysis Exchange project wherein high resolution satellite imaging is being applied to develop building exposure models for risk assessment in major Southeast Asian cities.




Associate Professor Su Yean Teh

Universiti Sains Malaysia

Su Yean Teh received her Bachelor of Mathematics, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematical Modelling in 2004, 2005 and 2008 respectively, all from Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). In 2006, she was awarded the UNESCO/Keizo Obuchi Research Fellowship to undertake research on “Management Modelling of Everglades Wetlands Hydrology and Ecosystems” at University of Miami, Florida, USA. Presently, she is an Associate Professor at the School of Mathematical Sciences, USM. Her research interests revolve around mathematical modelling with particular focus on computational simulation of real-life problems to provide insights and to suggest possible solutions. She works on various topics in ecosystem and environmental modelling, many of which were initiated and driven by the needs of the country or industry. She was invited on various occasions to visit University of Miami and Nanjing Forestry University under U. S. Geological Survey grants. She was also sponsored by ICTP to attend four workshops at Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) at Trieste, Italy and by Brown International Advanced Research Institutes (BIARI) at Brown University to participate in Climate Change and Its Impacts: Connecting Local Variability and Knowledge in a Global System. She was awarded the prestigious L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science Malaysia Fellowship 2017 for her research on unifying STEM towards sustainable management of our coastal resources. She is currently an Associate Editor of Springer’s Hydrogeology Journal. She has published numerous articles, most notably in Journal of Asian Earth Sciences, Ecosystems, Ecological Modelling, Landscape Ecology, Agricultural and Forest Meteorology, Hydrogeology Journal, Environmental Science and Pollution Research, Theoretical and Applied Mechanics Letters and Journal of Marine Science and Engineering.
