Shuli Niu is a professor at the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research (IGSNRR), Chinese Academy of Sciences, and has (co-)authored over 130 scientific articles since 2004. Her research interests include, but are not limited to, ecosystem in response and feedback to global change. By using manipulative experiments, she studied ecosystem carbon, nitrogen and water cycles in response to climate change and human disturbance. By using data mining approach, she synthesized the global eddy flux data and remote sensing data to reveal the global patterns of biogeochemical cycles and the mechanisms underlying their variations. Her study comprehensively revealed the regulation mechanisms of climate-carbon cycle feedback.
