Xiang Lin

Ph.D. candidate, Teaching Assistant

Xiang is interested in ecological succession of plant communities under different environmental stresses, especially soil contamination. He uses GIS technology to trace plant transitions over time and build models to simulate ecological succession, as well as to predict future succession scenarios. In addition, he is also familiar with bioinformatic technologies used in genetic studies.
