Research overview

Currently, we still have very limited knowledge about the responses of Scottish degraded peatland dynamics to climate change and human activity, which in turn challenges our understanding of the reasonable management of this threatened and rare ecosystem. The aim of my PhD research is to provide multi-proxy evidence from degraded lowland raised bogs in Scotland. These detailed palaeoecological records and a critical appraisal of conservation and restoration schemes in Scotland would greatly help to avoid pitfalls in the management of such ecosystems in other parts of the world. 


I graduated in 2019 with a master’s degree in palaeoecology from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS). After graduation, I started a 4-year PhD program (funded by China Scholarship Council and University of St Andrews) to pursue my interest in climatic and anthropogenic drivers on Holocene Scottish degraded peatland dynamics.
