Research interests

My research interests lie in the use of traditional medicinal plants. Traditional medicine has been playing an important role in keeping human’s health for thousands of years, and medicinal plants are the main sources of ingredients for treating diseases and health care. I would like to do some research on the traditional medicinal plants with modern analysis technologies, hereby to investigate their ethnobotany, habitat ecology, phytochemistry and pharmacology.

Field studies
