   Research Interests:

My research mainly includes the specimen-based study of inventory, taxonomy, phylogeography and Conservation of biodiversity of SE Asia and adjacent areas, especially on fishes, crustaceans and mollusks.  

1. Inventory and biodiversity evaluation. Mainly focus on fish and aquatic biodiversity of East Himalayan and SE Asia, cover investigation and evaluation of distribution, status, biomass, utilization of fishes and crustaceans, and impact from human activities such as hydro power development; investigate and monitor important lakes and wetlands, study dynamics and conservation of wetland ecosystems; identify biodiversity hotspot and blank areas for biodiversity survey; evaluate status of endangered and key protected species.  

2. Taxonomy, systematics, phylogenetics and phylogeography of animals, especially on fishes, crustaceans and mollusks. I am especially interested in impact of geological events to formation of distribution pattern of China-SE Asia biodiversity. 

3. Conservation and utilization of key economic aquatic resources, especially fishes, crustaceans and mollusks. 

  Supported Projects:

1. Survey and conservation of Wildlife in SE Asia, supported by Chinese Academy of Sciences (2015−2017)

2. Systematics and Phylogeny of Chinese Schistura and its related genera, supported by NSFC (2013−2016)

3.Evaluation of important fish biodiversity in Nujiang Valley, supported by Chinese Academy of Sciences (2015−2016)

4.Revision of name list and evaluation of biodiversity of fishes of Yunnan-, supported by Yunnan Provincial Environment Protection Fund (2015−2016)
