Academic Interests

My main research interest lies in the impact of climate change and human activities on the aquatic environment and ecology. I received my MSc from Chinese Academy of Sciences where I studied the eutrophication and carbon cycling in the lakes and reservoirs along middle and lower reach of the Yangtze River, China. I received my PhD from University College London, UK. For my PhD I studied the spatio-temporal change of diatoms and the history of organic carbon in upland Scottish lakes through a Dorothy Hodgkin Postgraduate Scholarship (DHPA), Research Councils UK. Before joining CEES, I was working as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at University of Southampton, UK for a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation project Aquatest. I researched the microbial water quality in developing countries, particularly in South Africa and China.

Here at CEES, University of Oslo I am working on the project BiWA with Professor Dag Hessen, Professor Tom Andersen and other colleagues. I am researching the impact of climate change on the Scandinavian lakes with collaborations of NINA (Norwegian Institute for Nature Research) NIVA (Norwegian Institute for Water Research) and University of Umeå, Sweden.
