I study the spatial-temporal dynamics of epidemic diseases including plague (the third pandemics) and dengue (a new threat to human health which is more sensitive to climate change). I also work on the rodent population regulation, which is not only because the major host of plague is rodent but alos the interesting indirect and direct effects of climate change on rodent population dynamics in diverse ecosystems.

I am interesting in ecological theory and modelling, and I am also interesting in the history and culture.
