Yanjie Zhao is a postgraduate research student of Geography and Environmental Science at the University of Southampton.

I am interested in lake ecosystem transition, especially in shallow lakes that have been interfered by human activities. The complexity in lake ecosystems attracts me. In the process of disentangling the puzzles, we see pieces of interaction and feedback. Since 2013, I started an empirical study on sediment diatom in shallow lakes in Yangtze River basin for my Master thesis. Personally, I am also keen on broad geographical and environmental topics.
