  • Research Associate
  • LEES Lab


Gang is a research associate in the LEES lab. He received his Ph.D. in Ecology from the Northeast Normal University, China in 2011, and a visiting scholar from Southern Research Station of USDA Forest Service, U.S. in 2009. From 2011 to 2023 he worked at the School of Life Science, Shanxi University, China, as an associate professor. His research interests span both ecosystem functioning and modeling. He is a broadly trained ecological scholar with interests in the ecosystem-atmosphere interactions in the natural and managed ecosystems. As the one of the earliest scholars to study carbon-water-energy fluxes in China, He had set up 16 eddy covariance towers across a variety of ecosystems on the Mongolian Plateau. The complete data processing and upscaling code he developed runs validly for the field study. He is also the core member of FLUXNET and US-China Carbon Consortium (USCCC). Much of his work has been on improving the understanding and performance of ecological and hydrological sciences.
