Response and biophysical regulation of biosphere-atmosphere scalar and energy exchanges
My main research interest is the response and biophysical regulation of surface-atmosphere carbon, water, and energy fluxes to climatic variability in contrasting ecosystems (Research photos). I started my M.S. research at a remote mountain cloud forest in Taiwan. Since then, I have been working on the measurements, data processing, and model simulation of eddy covariance and micrometeorology data at more than 10 sites. I conducted my Ph.D. research in northwest Ohio, USA and examined the response of ecosystem CO2/CH4/H2O fluxes to recent climatic variability and anomaly in the three most prevalent ecosystems of the region (marsh, cropland and forest). I also participated in research that targets the ecosystem CO2/CH4/H2O fluxes at factorial-design biofuel croplands and western Lake Erie. I have research experience in diverse ecosystems ranging from cloud forests to Great Lakes and work closely with researchers with backgrounds from remote-sensing to plant physiology and wetlands. Currently, I'm a post-doc working on FLUXNET Project at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. My main responsibilities is analyzing and manipulating long-term and comprehensive data sets on carbon, water and energy exchange between vegetation and the atmosphere to fulfill goals of the FLUXNET project.
