Interest: 

I am a PhD student in the Movement Ecology Lab, working on models of invasion patterns. The main goal of my PhD is to model the spread of 17 invasive plants species in China over the last 130 years. My main scientific interest is ecological modeling.

In my MSc research I implied an atmospheric model to birds migratory tracks in order to understand the effect of thermal conditions on risk taking and speed selection of individuals migrating birds .
