My research interests focus on the subject of Environmental Science, covering soil, plant, water and the atmospheric system. I have experiences in studies on biosphere-atmosphere interactions by using stable isotopes to quantify the amount of CO2 and H2O exchanged during photosynthesis, respiration and transpiration. I have a broad interests in water and carbon cycle studies in land and riverine systems. Besides overseeing operations of the research labs and providing analytical support for the faculty and students, I am also participating actively in researches with other faculty members. Briefly, some of the research interests are itemized below:
