Dr Fangyuan Hua

Assistant Professor at Peking University and Conservation Ecologist

Role: CCI collaborative projects, Project team member


I joined Peking University as an Assistant Professor in May 2019, after finishing my Newton International Fellowship at the University of Cambridge. Prior to my two-year stint at Cambridge, I obtained my Ph.D. degree in the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation at the University of Florida, and subsequently did a three-year postdoc at the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University. I was trained as a field ecologist with a special interest on how forest birds respond to anthropogenic impacts. This academic upbringing still largely defines my research identity, although I also try to expand the scope and strengthen the utility of my research by borrowing from other expertise, such as data synthesis, remote sensing and environmental economics.
