I am currently a postdoc in the Fei lab at Purdue University. My research aims to better understand how plant species mediate ecosystem functioning. Particularly, I am interested in the impacts of plant invaders on ecosystem processes in temperate ecosystems at local, landscape, and regional scales.

Research interests:

Forest ecology | Plant-soil feedback | Nutrient cycling | Plant physiology | Root ecology | Linkage between above- & below-ground resource-use strategies | Climate change | Phenology | Spatial analysis (GIS) | Temperate forests | Plant invasions

Curriculum Vitae | ORCID | ResearchGate | Google Scholar Citations
