On 1 September 2023, Feifei Cao joined the IGRAC team as Senior Groundwater Specialist. After obtaining her doctoral degree in hydrogeology at the University of Rheims Champagne-Ardenne and working as postdoctoral researcher at Stockholm University, she decided to continue her career in the Netherlands.
"I am a hydrogeologist with a Ph.D. in Hydrogeology and Geochemistry from University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne (France) in collaboration with the French Geological Survey (BRGM). My educational journey also includes an Engineer’s degree in Water Sciences and Technologies from École Polytechnique Universitaire de Montpellier in France and a Bachelor's degree in Hydrology and Water Resources from Wuhan University in China. My academic background has equipped me with a strong foundation in hydrogeology, environmental geochemistry, and water resource management, and I am now eager to apply this knowledge to support sustainable groundwater resources development and management as a member of IGRAC."
"After obtaining my Ph.D. degree in France, I pursued my professional career with a two-year postdoctoral research position at Stockholm University in Sweden. My previous works during my post-doc, Ph.D. as well as engineering internships have been focusing on the characterization of aquifer systems, groundwater assessment related to different quality issues and contaminants (including pesticides, arsenic, nitrate, etc.), as well as the impact of climate change on groundwater resources, giving me more than 6 years of experience in the field of geoscience and groundwater management."
