Research Interests:

  • CO2, energy and water vapor exchanges between a vegetated ecosystem and atmosphere using both model and field observation (eddy covariance) approaches; environmental controls on these fluxes and their seasonal and inter-annual variations; uncertainties involved in the flux measurement
  • Design and development of algorithms that can be used in managing (Qa/Qc) and gap-filling meteorological and flux data
  • Numerical simulation (such as large eddy simulation and regional scale atmospheric model) of atmospheric turbulence in the boundary layer and its interaction with a vegetation canopy
