Work experience
Extensive knowledge in whole plant physiology, agronomy, crop production and management, plant ecology, cropping systems, plant nutrition and carbon metabolism, plant growth regulators, and soil fertilizer. _x000D_
Expertise in quantifying the responses of field crops to environmental stresses (e.g. water deficit, light, atmospheric CO2 concentration, and nutrients), crop-soil water relations, and effects of water stress, elevated CO2, and plant growth regulators on plant growth, development, physiological characteristics, crop yield and quality. _x000D_
Excellent technical and mechanical aptitude (including measuring photosynthesis, respiration, nonstructural carbohydrates, photo-assimilate translocation, water potential components, water use efficiency, irrigation scheduling, and other physiological parameters with various laboratory instruments and techniques).
Highest Academic achievement and qualification
B.Sc degree, Biology, Northwestern Agricultural University, 1986
