PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE 

National 

Since January 2000: He has been working as a leading professor at State Key Laboratory of Resources and Environment Information System, Institute of Geographical Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Since 1986, he has innovatively been developing the high accuracy and speed method (HASM) for surface modelling to give solutions to error problem, slow-computational-speed problem and multi-resolution problem which long troubled surface modelling. HASM has been successfully applied to simulating surfaces of elevation, soil properties, changes of biodiversity and ecosystem services, and driving forces of the changes as well as analysing ecosystem responses to climatic change. In all these applications, HASM produced more accurate results than the classical methods. In 2016, a Fundamental Theorem of Earth Surface Modelling (FTESM) is created on the basis of development of HASM and its applications in last 30 years. From FTESM, seven corollaries have been deduced, corresponding to interpolation, upscaling, downscaling, data fusion and data assimilation respectively. 

From June 1998 to December 1999: A senior visiting scientist in Institute of Geographical Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and paid attention to models for ecosystem assessment and environmental change detection. 

From September 1992 to April 1995: Worked in Ministry of Science and Technology of People’s Republic of China and took part in the activities concerned with transnational development projects. He paid attention to modeling major issues in the regional development. 

From September 1984 to July 1986: Worked as an assistant in Mathematical Department of LongDong university in China. 

International 

From May 1995 to May 1998: A postdoctoral scientist in The Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research of Germany. The research topic was modeling major issues in the strategic management system of land such as biological diversity, land productivity, land carrying capacity, ecosystem stability, landscape pattern and holistic characteristics of land.  

Since 2001, contact person of Western China Ecosystem Assessment (http://www.maweb.org/en/SGA.WesternChina.aspx), Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA),  

From September-December 2006, Senior Professor at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology as a winner of Sino-Swiss Research Fellowship Program 2006. 

From August 2009 - July 2014, Visiting Professor at University of California Riverside
