Research interests

My interests lie on GHG (greenhouse gases) fluxes in ecosystems under Global Change condition. I am attracted by the processes of global change on Methane (one of the important GHG) fluxes in terrestrial soils, and mechanisms which are responsible for the observed changes. For PhD thesis, I will investigate methane exchange in natural forest soil and field condition under global warming conditions to understand how its emission and diffusion will be affected in future years.
