Work experience
My researches have been supported by National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, Chinese Academy of Sciences, etc. Now I am the chief scientist of the 973 program started last year. Since last decades, I have accomplished more than 10 projects about karst rocky desertification researches from the different angles, including soil loss and water conservation, geographic revolution, soil formation and evolution, ecological restoration and water resource usage and protection,etc. _x000D_
