Academic & Research Interest

Dr. Tang’s research interests are primarily in developing and utilizing process-based ecosystem and hydro-ecological models to simulate (i) terrestrial ecosystem dynamics under external environmental change, including plant species growth, spatial distribution and composition, and the cycling of carbon (e.g., net ecosystem exchange and soil heterotrophic respiration) in terrestrial ecosystems; and (ii) land-surface hydrological processes, including river stream flow, soil evaporation and plant transpiration, the formation and transportation of nutrients (e.g., nitrate and dissolved organic carbon) over spatially variable terrain as well as the linkages between ecological and hydrological processes at regional and watershed scales. Dr. Tang also has strong interest in spatial data analysis and excellent skills at using FORTRAN and C/C++ programming languages to process and manage geospatial data as well as code numerical models. He is skilled in the use of R-statistical programming language to analyze, graph and map research data.
