Ben Abbott Lab

Qiwen Zhang is a Ph.D. student working on using Arctic river networks as multi-scale sensors to reveal terrestrial and aquatic signals of ecosystem change. She earned a B.S. in the field of agriculture from China Agricultural University, and an M.S. in the field of ecology from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, where she worked for nearly three years on permafrost ecosystems of the Tibetan Plateau. Her research interests focus on ecosystem ecology, carbon cycle, nutrient cycle, greenhouse gases, and ecosystem feedbacks to climate change. She enjoys gardening, street photography, visiting museums and galleries, and spending time with nature and children. Maybe one day she will be able to sing while playing guitar.
