Research Interests

I’m currently a PhD student supervised by Prof Tim Coulson and Dr Joelene Hughes at University of Oxford.

I did my master degree in Ecology and Environment at Linkoping University in Sweden and my undergraduate degree in Plant Genetics and Breeding at Chinese Agricultural University in China.

My main research interests is how environmental and climate change impacts ecosystem structure and functions. I am currently studying the delicate, high elevation mountain ecosystems in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau where Snow Leopard serves as one of the few top predators.
