Research interest
My research focuses on how climate, soil texture, and soil types affect the soil carbon and soil carbon sequestration efficiency in different land uses across China, particularly the processes and mechanisms of soil carbon stabilization and decomposition. The techniques used include the analyses: the different components of organic carbon, the stability of soil organic carbon, and soil sequestration efficiency, as well as data assimilation to study soil organic carbon and organic material decay dynamics.

• Ph.D. in Agro-environment, Sep 2016--Jun 2019.

• Research direction: Characteristics and driving factors of organic material decay in cropland of China.
