1. A full profile analysis of carbon vs. tillage practice in the NFS and STAR experiment of UK
2. Evaluating the soil carbon stock of different land use types in arid and semi-arid area of China and its change with the soil depth.
3. Studying the soil organic and inorganic carbon accumulation of cropland in the Yellow River Delta, the conversion process and the controlling mechanism.


Active research projects:

Title: Modelling and measuring soil organic carbon under different tillage practices in agricultural soils of the UK
Description: My study focuses on the vertical and spatial distributions of soil organic carbon under different tillage practices over time, and will be delivered through a combination of analysis of data from the medium-term field station in UK (e.g., NFS project and Mid-Pilmore tillage experiment), and application/development of the DNDC and DayCent models.
