DetailsName: Jie Wei
Position: Recognised DPhil Student
I completed my BA in Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering at Wuhan University, China in 2016, during which my mainly research areas are Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System. After that I start my DPhil studies in Global Change Ecology at Tsinghua University, China, where I investigate the phenological asynchrony between bird life-history timing and their food resources under the remarkable global change. I am also a visiting DPhil student at the Edward Grey Institute for Ornithology in Oxford.
Rapid climate change may disturb previously trophic interactions by altering the seasonal timings of interacting species asynchronously, resulting in a ‘phenological mismatch’. I am interested in using satellite-derived measures of vegetation green-up as represent of the seasonal vegetation development, and relating this to the crucial life-history events of bird species. I aim to explore the extent to which vegetation green-up predict the variation across space and time in bird seasonal activities, and whether phenological mismatch is related to the fitness-related measures and even long-term population dynamic.
