I have specialised in assessing the risk of pollutants (heavy metals and persistent organic pollutants) on the ecological environment and health of threatened species. I have a particular interest in the impacts of human activities (such as industry, coal burning, tourism, etc.) and analyzing the sources of pollutants in the Giant Panda habitat.
I gained my Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Engineering from Shandong University in China and I am currently a doctoral student in Institute of Earth Environment at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, China. My primary research focuses on the spatial distribution of pollutants in Panda habitat, assessing ecological and health risk of Giant Panda in Qinling Mountain, and suggesting policy changes to ensure that the newly proposed Giant Panda National Park in Sichuan Province is environmentally sustainable. The 10,476 square mile proposed park will link several existing habitats, creating a vital corridor for this species.
