Dr. Hanqin Tian is Director of International Center for Climate and Global Change Research, Solon and Martha Dixon Professor and University Alumni Professor of Ecology in the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences at Auburn University.  He did his postdoctoral study in the Ecosystems Center, Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole after finishing his Ph.D. from the State University of New York College of Environmental Sciences and Forestry and Syracuse University.  Prior to joining Auburn University, he was Associate Professor in Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Kansas, Lawrence; Staff Scientist in MBL Ecosystems Center and Research Affiliate in MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, Massachusetts.


Dr.
Tian is an ecosystem scientist and systems modeler worked at a broad scale and examined ecosystem processes and exchanges (energy, carbon, nitrogen and water) that occur at the interfaces of the atmosphere, biosphere and hydrosphere.  He has become increasingly interested in coupled biogeochemical cycles in the Earth’s ecosystems and dynamics of coupled natural and human systems.  Dr. Tian’s work has been published in prestigious journals, including NATURE and SCIENCE, and featured in various media including newspapers (e.g. Boston Global, Washington Post, New York Times), TV programs (e.g. ABC, CNN) and radio (e.g. BBC-London), and included in the Assessment Reports of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the National Assessment of the Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change for the United States of America.

Research Interests:

Dr. Tian is an ecosystem scientist and systems modeler worked at a broad scale and examined ecosystem processes and exchanges (energy, carbon, nitrogen and water) that occur at the interfaces of the atmosphere, biosphere and hydrosphere.  His primary interest is in the understanding of coupled biogeochemical cycles in the Earth’s ecosystems and dynamics of coupled natural and human systems by using a systems approach and merging new technology (GIS, GPS, RS and Computer Simulation).  He works at a spectrum of spatial scales that range from plot to watershed to regional to global, and a spectrum of organisms from microbes to trees. His research fields have covered a range of topics, including studies of carbon, nitrogen and water cycles in a range of ecosystems across the globe including boreal and temperate forests in North America and East Asia, tropical forests in the Amazon Basin and Southeast Asia, savannas in Africa, grasslands in United States and Mongolia, and croplands in China and United States.

Research Approaches:

The work in Tian’s laboratory is necessarily interdisciplinary and collaborative.  Much of the research has utilized an integrated approach that is a combination of systems thinking, systems modeling, computer simulation, spatial analysis (GIS, GPS & RS), and ecosystem theory. While we focus on model development for data analysis and hypothesis testing, we seek close collaborations with colleagues for experiments and field observations.

Research Projects:

The current research projects include studies of quantifying biotic, climatic and anthropogenic controls on terrestrial ecosystem dynamics and the global carbon cycle; characterizing and identifying the feedback mechanisms between terrestrial ecosystems and the climatic system; modeling dynamics of terrestrial ecosystems involving exchanges (energy, water, carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus) that occur at the interfaces of the atmosphere, biosphere and hydrosphere; and investigating dynamics of human-ecosystem interactions at the urban-rural interface.
