About Ai Wen

My research has two foci: 1) wildlife and human interactions in the agricultural ecosystem. I am interested in the ecosystem services provided by pollinators and birds to humans; meanwhile, I am interested to examine the wildlife habitat value of farms and how sustainable agricultural practices can benefit wildlife. 2) I use ecological concepts to examine the microbial communities in human bodies and depict the pattern of human infectious diseases from an ecological perspective. 

In the long run, I want to collaborate with my Chinese colleagues to work on wildlife conservation in China.
