    Biography: I am interested in ecological and social vulnerability in the context of climate change, and what environmental policy maximizes greenhouse gases emission, reduce vulnerability and improve adaption capacity. To assess vulnerability and generate effective policy, I use multiple technologies, such as GIS, remote sensing, uncertainty optimization, Bayesian modelling and statistic method. Multi-disciplinary studies of eco-vulnerability assessment, eco-corridor planning, population simulation, optimal uses of crop straw, food consumption and malaria risk associated with climate change have been conducted. The overall goal of my research is to provide the necessary and quantitative understanding on the impact of climate change and support reliable decision makings on climate mitigation and adaptation.

    Research Interest: Functional ingredients in Food Phytochemistry, such as the polyphenol, anthocyanin, lycopene, and resveratrol, has presented the antioxidant and many other biologic activities. The enrichment, functionality and application of the anthocyanin and lycopene have been our focus for more than twenty years.New technologies in Food. Application of new technologies will give a solution for current problem in food. We have focus on the ultra high pressure treatment in the pork and vegetable. The quality and shelf life of the product were changed. The proper parameter of the high pressure treatment will be a key to enhance the quality of the food. Energy saving technology in food processing. Drying is a traditional technology for a long time. Energy saving and better quality are the two main melodies in the drying technology. The combination of heat pump and some other technology will give a way for the better efficiency and better quality of products.
