Gang Li is a visiting scholar from Northwest University (Associate Professor, China) who is engaged in scientific research on locust outbreak and environmental change in historical China based on several grants from China. In Heidelberg he is working on a joint research topic: “interaction process and response mechanism between locust breeding area evolution and watershed system change in the Eastern Monsoon Region of China during the historical period”. This study is expected to offer historical reference and scientific foundation for future eco-environmental protection, disaster risk assessment and disaster reduction strategies.
