Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

Yiyang Ding is currently a fourth-year Ph.D student in Forest soil sciences of University of Helsinki, Finland. She received her B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Forestry from North-east Forestry University, China (2015). Her major research interests including root and mycorrhizal ecology and above- and below- ground C cycling of forest ecosystems. In her more recent publication on Journal of Forest Ecology and Management (2018), she emphasized that a strong focus should be on the quantification of both above- and belowground C cycling of different canopy and understory species in boreal forests. Her future research will be focused on fine root dynamics across the ecological gradient in Central Finland by using two modern observing methods (Minirhizotron and Scanner).
