Research Interest:

My current research focuses on how soil microbial communities and soil ecological processes respond to global environmental changes such as precipitation regime changes, elevated nitrogen deposition, and urbanization.  I am particularly interested in the mechanisms of how soil microbes adapt and feedback to climate changes, the interactions between microbial community structure and function under global environmental changes, the mechanisms of how soil microbes regulate soil C, N and P cycling, and the modeling of microbe-mediated soil processes such as greenhouse gas emission, soil organic matter decomposition, and nitrogen mineralization.   I tend to focus on the subtropical regions of China, where the evergreen boradleaved forests and diverse plantation forests form the largest forest area of the country.  Besides using experimental approaches, I also develope theoretical and process-based models to extrapolate site empirical knowledge to ecosystem, landscape and regional scales.
