Haijun Kang worked as a joint PhD student at UBC from July 2013 to July 2015. His research interests include: sustainable forest management, forest asset management and forest resource asset evaluation. His current research is about the development of adaptive strategies for sustainable forest management in the context of climate change. The specific objectives of my research are to 1) simulate the impacts of climate change on the growth response of Chinese fir at the stand-level, 2) evaluate the management tradeoffs between fiber production and other ecosystem services under a changing climate for Chinese fir at the landscape-level and 3) develop adaptive forest management strategies to climate change for local forest management units.
