My research interests evolve around cooperation between grassland herdsmen, water- energy-food nexus along Mekong River, and agent-based modeling. In the past several years, I have been carrying fieldwork on topics of migrant workers, agriculture development, and environmental policy making in China. I published several papers in Chinese and took part in writing four book chapters about ecological civilization in China, public capital, economics methodology and urbanization. My dissertation will build upon my economic expertise and focus on comparative analysis of decision rules in agricultural spatially-explicit agent-based models.
