Overview

Wu has the research experiences about wildfires more than 8 years, specific to the studies (1) global burnt area trends from wildfires and their drivers induced by climate change using multiple models and remote sensing datasets. (2) The role of fires in the global carbon cycles to contribute to the discussion of what constitutes a safe upper limit to global warming. (3) Impacts of fires on vegetation distribution and carbon balance in global and regional boreal ecosystems. He has conducted fieldwork in the boreal forest of China to assess the influence of fire intensities on forest fuel load.

Broad research specialisms:

Fires, atmosphere-land carbon cycles feedbacks, vegetation dynamics, and climate change

Supervisors:

Stephen Sitch and Lina Mercado
