I had been trained as a landscape ecologist. I finished my PhD thesis on susitainable management of Mongolian grassland ecosystems in 2009.
The ultimate goal of my research is to apply scientific knowledge toward ecosystem-based management and conservation under environmental changes. Recently, I am particularly interested in the consequences of realistic loss of biodiversity on ecosystem functioning and services.
Field observations and experiments (mainly in arid and semi-arid ecosystems, and alpine and subalpine ecosystems), simulation techniques, and analyses of large empirical datasets are in my toolbox.
