Yongcun is Associate Professor of Soil Science at The Institute of Soil Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences. His current works are mainly concentrated on dynamic modelling of soil organic carbon in cropland of China, estimates of carbon sequestration potential in cropland of China under recommended management practices.
Research interests: (i) Modeling of soil organic carbon dynamics, estimates of soil carbon storage and soil carbonsequestration potential under recommended management practice, (ii) Spatial variability, spatial prediction (soil-landscape modeling, pedometrics), sampling design, and uncertainty assessment for mapping soil properties (mainly SOC and soil heavy metals)
