  Research and Interests:

I use plant fossils to understand the biodiversity in reponse to paleoclimatic changes throughout Cenozoic. Currently, I am studying several Neogene floras in SW China, e.g., Yunnan, and Tibet. I believe plant fossils can tell us many interesting stories about life in deep time.

Direction:
  Paleobotany, Paleoclimatology and Paleoecology
