About us

We study biogeochemical cycles of organic matter in modern and paleo-ecosystems using molecular and isotopic approaches, with a particular focus on understanding how human activities alter natural cycles of organic matter...


Ongoing projects include various types of aquatic systems across broad geographic regions, from inland rivers in Western China, to Nankai Trough in Japan, to streams, rivers and coastal waters in US.
