I obtained my PhD at China University of Geosciences, Wuhan. I have basic knowledge of earth science and terrestrial ecosystem ecology. My research mainly focuses on climate change and global carbon and water cycles on a broad range of timescales, with the application of meteorological observation, remote-sensing images, paleorecords and land surface models. I am especially interested in critical zone evolution (soil-land surface-atmosphere interactions) during Quaternary.
Currently, we are studying the land cover changes during the mid-Holocene in two monsoon regions (North Africa and East Asia) with compiled climate, vegetation and wetland data, and a land surface model - ORCHIDEE.
