The overarching goal of Yu-Chun's research is to provide natural resource managers information needed for sustainable inland fisheries management. To practically achieve this goal, it requires an understanding of aquatic ecosystems and a capacity to evaluate management strategies in a timely manner. 

Yu-Chun's research strives to use quantitative ecological models to (1) identify the causality between concurrent factors and observed ecosystem changes and (2) provide timely evaluations on current and potential management strategies.
