- About Us
Ph.D (2008 - 2013 ), Michigan State University, USA
B.S. (2003 - 2007), Zhejiang University, China
My broad research interests are in the field of sustainability science. Currently, I am keenly interested in integrating multiple disciplines and techniques (e.g., ecology, socioeconomics, management, remote sensing, and system modeling) to study ecosystem services, human well-being, their linkages, and complexity in Coupled Human and Natural Systems (CHANS). I also apply social psychological theories to understand the underlying mechanisms of conservation behaviors. I advocate for actionable science to shape policy making both for ecosystem services and human well-being.
