    Biography: I am interested in ecological and social vulnerability in the context of climate change, and what environmental policy maximizes greenhouse gases emission, reduce vulnerability and improve adaption capacity. To assess vulnerability and generate effective policy, I use multiple technologies, such as GIS, remote sensing, uncertainty optimization, Bayesian modelling and statistic method. Multi-disciplinary studies of eco-vulnerability assessment, eco-corridor planning, population simulation, optimal uses of crop straw, food consumption and malaria risk associated with climate change have been conducted. The overall goal of my research is to provide the necessary and quantitative understanding on the impact of climate change and support reliable decision makings on climate mitigation and adaptation.
