  Research interests: 

  My research interests generally lie in soil ecosystem processing and function in natural forests and monoculture forest plantations. And long term changes in soil properties under different ecosystems: the process comparison of soil organic matter decomposition, Soil organic carbon stocks, nutrients transformation and functions restoration.
