I am a postdoctoral research associate in Department of Geography at University at Buffalo.
My research is about Global Change Ecology. I'm interested in spatial and temporal interactions between plants and the environment. Specifically, my research focuses on the impacts from climate change on plant phenology and associated ecosystem processes. I use integrated approaches including field observation, remote sensing (ranging from time lapse cameras to Unmanned Aerial Vehicle systems (UAVs) and satellites) and statistical modelings to identify the mechanisms, patterns, forecasts, and consequences associated with plant phenology in temperate forest biomes.
I enjoy teaching students with diverse background to explore the fantastic nature. I'm excited to share my passion, knowledge, and experience to my students to inspire, guide and help them in their path of exploring, learning and developing.
