Education
Ph.D. in Agronomy, Yangzhou University, China. 2001-2006
B.S. in Agronomy, Yangzhou University, China. 1997-2001


Research Interests
My research interests are in the area of investigating the interactions between crop sustainable production and carbon and nutrient cycling as influenced by different agricultural managements through field studies. My current work focuses on assessing greenhouse gas (methane and nitrous oxide) emissions and soil carbon sequestration in agro-ecosystems.


Professional Experience
2009.8-present Associate Professor, Institute of Agricultural Resources and Environment, Jiangsu Academy of Agricultural Sciences, China.
2006.7-2009.7 Assistant Professor, Institute of Agricultural Resources and Environment, Jiangsu Academy of Agricultural Sciences, China.


Funding
3. 2012-2016. National Science and Technology Support Program of China (2012BAD14B12-2, PI): Research and demonstration of nutrient recycling patterns and techniques for combination of farming and animal husbandry.
2. 2011-2015. The Special Fund for Agro-scientific Research in the Public Interest, China (201103001-1, CO-PI, PI: L. Chen): Research and demonstration of mechanical production techniques for annual high-yielding of rice and wheat.
1. 2011-2012. Agricultural Science and Technology Innovation Fund of Jiangsu Province, China (CX113019, PI): Research and demonstration of patterns and techniques of summer catch crops cultivation in plastic greenhouse.
