Assistant Professor, Landscape Ecology & Ecosystem Service
Jiangxiao Qiu jointed the School of Forest, Fisheries, and Geomatics Sciences in 2017. He is primarily interested in landscape ecology, ecosystem ecology, global change ecology, conservation biology, and sustainability science. Previously, he has worked in the agricultural landscapes in the Midwest, and currently he also becomes interested in the sustainability and resilience of coastal ecosystem services in a changing climate such as sea level rise.
Jiangxiao's overarching research goal is to understand and predict how global environmental changes alter ecosystems and biodiversity at regional to global scales, and their consequences for a range of ecosystem services (benefits people obtain from nature such as food, water, climate and flood regulation, erosion control, and recreation) that underpins human well-being. His research takes an interdisciplinary approach integrating field observation and experiment, biophysical simulation models, remote sensing, landscape analysis, data synthesis, and social sciences to address basic and applied research questions across a range of spatial and temporal scales.
