Research Areas

Climate Change: Characterizing contemporary climate change and its spatiotemporal variations to identify the drivers and mechanisms leading to the changes in the climate system; Climate change impacts, vulnerability, and adaptation.

Global Change Ecology: Investigating the impacts of climate change on ecosystem processes and functions and understanding the physiological/ecological mechanisms for plants and animals to acclimate/adapt to future climate change.

Ecosystem Modeling: Developing process-based ecological and hydrological models to predict the impacts of climate change and human activities, such as land use change and nitrogen deposition, on ecosystem functions and dynamics; Using ecosystem models to quantify and predict ecosystem services for sustainable ecosystem management under changing climate and human practices; Application of big-data/data-model fusion techniques to ecosystem/Earth system modeling.
