Work experience
1. From 1991 to 1993, as a main researcher, I took part in a key project named low yield farmland improvement in Huanghuanhai district of China, which supported by the Chinese Ministry of Water Resources. I mainly worked on field experiment about the relation of planning, soil control, and irrigation water. The results have been used in the northwest of Jiangsu Province. High yield and saving water achievements have been made._x000D_
2. From 1994 to 1995, as a head of research project group, I worked on multi-purpose development and control level methods, we built a model project for small hilly lands._x000D_
3. From 1996 to 1997, as a visiting scholar of soil and water conservation, I learned at Kansas University of USA, it's good learning and working experiences for me.
