I am a professor in the School of Ecological and Environmental Sciences at East China Normal University in China. For the last few years, I have been working in diverse ecosystems and taxa and using different approaches to address some fundamental and emerging questions in biodiversity maintenance and community dynamics across space and time. My current research efforts include long-term forest dynamics, species coexistence in species-rich subtropical forests, biodiversity patterns and dynamics along elevational gradients in the Anthropocene, and conservation biogeography at both regional and global scales.
