Dan Wang is a professor of plant ecology at Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology. She received her Ph.D. at University of Toledo in 2008.
Professor Wang has been engaged in the research of plant physiological ecology, forest ecology, global change biology, ecosystem carbon balance, coupling between human and natural system, bioenergy, and etc. She is especially interested in understanding the responses and adaptions of plant growth and physiology under future global change conditions and quantifying the ecosystem services using meta-analysis and the earth system models. Finally, she tries to combine the experiments, data analysis and modeling to provide theoretical basis and scientific support for agriculture planning, land use and land management.
Research areas: global change biology, plant physiological ecology, bioenergy, modeling
