Junxi Hu


I am a joint-PhD student from Sichuan, China. I am planning to stay at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam for one year under the guidance of Prof. Hans Cornelissen and write my VU-PhD thesis. I am interested in effects of global change (especially nitrogen deposition and altered precipitation) on litter decomposition and associated microbial-mediated carbon cycle, and I also conduct synthesis-analysis to research these processes.
