Past visiting PhD student
Center for Systems Integration and Sustainability


Ming is an aspiring land system change and sustainability science scholar and a Ph.D. student in land resource and management, College of Land Science and Technology, China Agricultural University.

In the past, he worked on land use change and multi-functional evaluation of arable land with the support of the Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and the National Social Science Fund of China (NSSFC). During his time as a visiting Ph.D. student, he will attempt to apply the framework of metacoupling to the agro-ecosystems in the North Plain of China. This goal is to answer several key questions: a. how do human factors influence the sustainability of wheat production and agro-ecosystems through an internal joint framework over time? b. What is the relationship between domestic wheat trade and the South-to-North Water Transfer Project under the framework of pericoupling? How does the relationship affect the sustainability of agro-ecosystems in the North Plain of China? c. Can wheat imports to China reduce the use of water resources in the agro-ecosystems of in the North Plain of China? How do flows of telecoupling interact with each other? What are spillover effects?
