Personal Profile

I am currently working in the Department of Geography,ChinaUniversity of Geosciences (Wuhan)

Much of my research is focused on:

1) Ecology and paleoecology of testate amoebae in peatlands/wetlands, and their applications in paleohydrological reconstruction;.

2) testate amoeabe taxonomy, phylogeny and ;

3) Testate amoebae as indicators of water qualoty lakes, in relation to human activities.
