Work experience
The past and currenct research projects includes the Project of Major Research Plan of National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), the General Project of NSFC, the International Cooperation and Exchange Project of NSFC, the National Development Plan of Key Basic Research (973 Plan), the National Key Technology R&D Program; the Knowledge Innovation Program of CAS , and the West Light Foundation of CAS., etc. I has published more than ninety papers on domestic and international journals. My research interests are the correlations between crop-production and water consumption, optimal supplies of water and nutrients to crops, reasonable irrigation quota, watershed hydro-ecology and its responses to climate change.
