Work experience
Research fields cover prevention and control of soil salinization, monitoring and soil salinization and land degradation control, management and integrated use of soil and water resources. Has been in charge and successfully completed nearly twenty research projects and currently eight on-going research projects, including State keynote project, keynote project of the CAS, State Natural Science Foundation projects, international cooperation project, on genesis, development and prevention of salinization, dynamic monitoring of salinization and land degradation, simulation of soil water and salt regime, prevention of land degradation under irrigation of brackish water, soil salt water regulation mechanism and integrated management of salt-affected land. Have being the international partnership consultant expert of the FAO in management of salt- affected soils and salinization control for more than four projects.
