Mobility project

Modelling carbohydrate allocation to roots and root turn-over using the STICS model for improved prediction of soil carbon sequestration in cropping systems with annual or perennial species

The current project aims to improve the simulations of STICS model (v8.42) in predicting soil organic carbon (SOC) storage in cropping systems with annual or perennial species through better parameterizing the root traits for various crops. Four long term experiments with variou crops (mainly including maize, winter wheat, tall fescue, miscanthus, switchgrass and alfalfa) across France will be included in the study. The evaluated and improved STICS root module will be a quantitative tool for predicting SOC, SON, SWC and biomass (grain yield) for various crops and cropping systems. The results of the project will provide better understanding of the drivers of SOC storage in crop rotations, and help designing optimized management techniques and systems. They will contribute to rank cropping systems according to their capacity in achieving the “4 per mille” target and mitigating GHG.

Biography & research interests

I received my PhD degree on June 2015 from China Agricultural University. My PhD study was focused on assessing the impacts and adaptations of cropping systems to climate change in Northeast China. During September 2013 and May 2015, I worked as a jointing PhD student in Aarhus University and participated in the MACSUR project.
In July 2015, I started my postdoctoral research in Aarhus University. I was responsible for assessing multi-model performance in predicting N cycling in typical European crop rotations. The purpose of the study was to improve the model predictions through comparing the performances of 15 models in simulating N cycling in crop rotations in both continuous simulation and single year simulation.
In November 2016, I started another postdoctoral research in the AgroImpact unit in INRA to evaluate N leaching and N mineralization based on both long-term field experiments and STICS simulation. The study aims to improve the simulations of N leaching and N mineralization for the STICS model and to optimize N management in cropping systems.
My research interests are mainly focused on crop modelling, Water-Nitrogen-Carbon cycling in planting-soil systems, climate change impacts and adaptation.
