Energy Research Focus:

Climate change, Ecosystem functions and services, Ecosystem modeling, Biological carbon sequestration, Renewable energy. Specifically, renewable energy policy and its ecological and environmental impacts in China.

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.

Big Data and Ecosystem Modeling: Using big-data and data-model fusion techniques to predict the impacts of climate change and human activities on ecosystem functions and dynamics, including biodiversity.

Ecosystem Services: Using ecosystem models to quantify and predict ecosystem services for sustainable ecosystem management under changing climate and human practices.

Renewable Energy: Renewable energy policy and its ecological and environmental impacts in China.

Biological Carbon Sequestration and Utilization: Biological carbon sequestration through reforestation/afforestation projects and carbon-oriented ecosystem management; Biological carbon utilization and storage through lithic and plastic mulching and CO2 fertilization in agriculture.
