My research interests focus on climate changing impacts upon a variety of habitats, such as coastal wetlands and high elevation forest watersheds. Over the time, people have seen climate changes in many aspects globally: atmospheric CO2 increasing, elevated sea level, and air temperature rises. My dissertation is to apply computer model to simulate these changes and impacts on high elevation forested watersheds including plants productivity, surrounding soils, and stream chemistries (current dissertation topic: Prediction of future climate changes impact on the Southeast U.S. high elevation forested watersheds with the biogeochemical model PnET-BGC). Furthermore, forest system is vulnerable to human involved activities, for instance, atmospheric depositions. Another proposed work for my dissertation would be the future deposition projection influences on these forested watersheds (nitrogen and sulfur). Except my own research, I have worked on several other projects so far including BP oil spill effects on local coastal wetland plants (e.g., Spartina alterniflora and Juncus roemerianus), Northern Gulf of Mexico sea level rising, and land cover and land use changes. During this time, I have learned a lot of knowledge and techniques such as remote sensing, productivity measurement in both small (LiCor 6400XT) and relatively large scale (Eddy Covariance Tower), model building, statistic and scientific experiment design, programming using R, C++, and Fortran, and being a boat captain.
