Full-time lab members
Dr. Umar Aftab Abbasi
He is a Postdoctoral Fellow (2021-2023) in Forest Ecology. He is interested in plant functional traits, community assembly processes and ecosystem functions in forest ecosystems.
Mr. Farman Ullah
He is a PhD student (2020-2024) in Forest Ecology and Management on Chinese University and Nanjing Government Scholarships. He is interested in to explore the forest diversity, structure and functioning of Pakistani forests. He is also working in the subtropical forests of Eastern China.
Part-time researchers and co-advised students
Ms. Maryam Kazempour Larsary
She is a PhD student (2017-2021) in forest science at University of Guilan, Iran. I am co-advising her during PhD study with Prof. Dr. Hassan Pourbabaei. She is interested in to explore the forest diversity, structure and functioning along climate and soil gradients in Iranian temperate forests.
He was my co-advised PhD student, graduated from University of Tehran Iran. Currently, he is working as a full-time researcher at Chinese Academy of Sciences while working as a part-time researcher in our group. His research interest encompasses the biodiversity-ecosystem functioning, above-below-ground functional relationships between plants and their environment, plant-plant interactions, mechanisms of plant community assembly, and structure and variation of plant species diversity.
MS. Li-Qiu Wang (王立秋)
She is a master graduate in Forestry (2019-2021) from Nanjing Forestry University. She worked on the relationships amongst environment, functional traits and aboveground
biomass in forests – global meta-community analyses.
Mr. Suwash Kunwar
He is a master graduate in Forestry (2019-201) on APFNet Scholarship, from Nanjing Forestry University. He was an international student from Nepal. During master research, he worked on linking multiple facets of tree diversity and structure with aboveground biomass along an elevation gradient in tropical forests of Nepal: implications for forest management.
