Over 150 papers and 4 monographs have been published by Dr. Deng. He has been invited to visit various universities, research organizations & NGOs abroad over 20 times for academic communication. Dr. Deng integrates econometrics methodologies and spatial analysis approaches into dynamics and consequences of land system change research, and contributes in the integration and comprehensive application of economy, geography and GIS technologies. For example, he introduces econometrics methodologies into the mechanism research of land use/cover change at grid level, and he also embeds remote sensing retrieval methods into land use conversion research as well as policy optimization. Some creative work has been achieved including: 1) relationship between economic development and urban expansion. For instance, based on county level verification, his research proofs that appropriate urbanization will not led to access loss of land resources, and 2) loss of agriculture land resulting from Grain for Green Project will not threaten China’s food Productivities. Some of those achievements have provided some valuable information in policy formulation, among which some have been approved by central government. Dr. Deng has developed and applied CGELUC model and DLS model into ecological planning at county level and municipal level. His research findings about dynamics and consequences of land system change have been published by Springer.
