The focus of my current research is the efforts to understand hydrological and biogeochemical cycles in forest and wetland ecosystems, species distribution in forest, coastal, and marine ecosystems, coastal land use and land cover change (including urban areas and coastal wetlands), resilience of coastal ecosystems to natural and anthropogenic disturbances (climate change, land use/land cover change, sea-level rise, storm surge, oil spill, and disease).
