Work ExperienceProf. Cui has been long engaged in the studies of water and soil conservation, especially of research related to debris flow. He has supervised more than 20 major projects dealing with debris flow formation and hazard mitigation, interaction between debris flows and river channels, sediment yield in the Upper Yangtze drainage, and ongoing risk mitigation related to the effects of the Wenchuan earthquake. Prof. Cui proposes the concept of quasi-debris flow based on 20 years of observations and in-situ monitoring and analysis, and has defined the relationships between streambed slope, fine sediment content of soil, and water saturation, allowing him to characterize the critical conditions for debris-flow initiation. Prof. Cui and his team have applied their theories of disaster mitigation to residential area and construction in mountainous regions, especially to the protection of cities and towns, scenic sites, hydropower stations, and highways.
