Work experience
Starting from 1994, I have attended various research projects concerning grassland ecology, _x000D_
adaptive management of grassland ecosystems and restoration of degraded ecosystems in the _x000D_
agro-pastoral region of north China. As an assistant principal investigator, I was responsible for two _x000D_
major large –scale experimental and demonstrational projects dealing with basic scientific _x000D_
mechanisms for degrading and restoring processes and controlling techniques and paradigm of _x000D_
grasslands and farm lands in north China. Currently, I am the director of Duolun restoration ecology _x000D_
research station where a multi-factor complex manipulation experiment has been going on to _x000D_
examine the relationships between grassland ecosystems and global change since 2004. Based on the _x000D_
above projects, over 100 peer reviewed papers were published in the high profile journals including _x000D_
Nature, Ecology, Global Change Biology and so forth.
