Research interests

1.the Marine carbon and nitrogen cycling processes, including the remineralization and nitrogen-removal processes at the sediment-water interface in the Yangtze river plume, hypoxia region, and the impacts on those processes from the variation of environments

2. Long-term real-time in-situ ocean monitoring system & observatory, including the spatial and temporal variation of the particles, organic matters, the biogenic matters, and the physiology of the phytoplankton in the marine system, and the short-term/long-term response of the eco-system to the extreme events, eg. storm, surge, hypoxia, and so on


       1.the Nitrogen-removal processes in coastal sediments at ECS and the mechanism under oxic-anoxic conditionsFunding No. 20142344), 2015/01 -2017/12250,000Project supported by the National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars of China in charge

       2. the impacts on the benthic nitrogen loss from the variation of current velocities at the sediment-water interface driven by the tidal forceFunding No. 20132789), 2014 /01-2016 /1240,000Specialized Research Fund for the Doctoral Program of Higher Education (in charge

       3.Denitrification and anammox processes and their mechanism in tidal sediments at ECSFunding No. 20131386),2013/08-2016/07 100,000sponsored by Natural Science Foundation of Shanghaiin charge
