I am here as a visiting scholar for 6 months (Oct., 2013 – Apr., 2014) with Prof. Jason Vogel. My research interest is mainly about carbon dynamic in the artificial forest ecosystem, and recently I am concentrated in the questions of the measurement and evaluation methods of carbon sequestration and effects of human activities on the soil organic carbon stability. My hobbies are reading, watching movies, listening to music and involving in some indoor sports. I also traveled a lot in China during student life. If you want to know something more about culture & history of China, maybe I can help you with that. And I would always love to make more friends.
