Professor Khan is a coastal and urban water management expert having more than twenty years of experience in research and teaching along with a strong track record of developing, managing and implementing consulting and capacity-building projects. His advanced training and collaborative work with multidisciplinary partners in several countries led him to develop a broader interdisciplinary understanding of coastal and urban water challenges, and placed him among the leading scientists having the capacity to integrate methods and approaches from various disciplines including water engineering, natural sciences, social sciences, spatial planning and landscape architecture. In his research, Professor Khan explores critical issues related to coastal and urban processes; sustainable coastal, delta and urban development; resilience, vulnerability and risk-reduction; coupled human-natural systems; nature-based solutions; water- and climate-sensitive infrastructure; water security; decision-making under uncertainty; and inclusive planning and governance.
