Prof Guangling Liu​
Postdoctoral Research Fellowship:
Eco-evolutionary modelling of biodiversity changes in open adaptive communities.​

Scope of Research: This project aims to use mathematical and statistical tools to monitor and predict the dynamics and patterns of community transitions when facing cross-scale stressors, such as habitat loss, biological invasions, and climate change. It brings together advanced mathematical models and statistical methods with real biodiversity data to create in-depth understanding of how ecological communities and interaction networks assemble and operate in changing environments. ​
