Contact Information: Dr. Hanqin Tian, School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences 4337 SFWS Building, 602 Duncan Drive AUBURN UNIVERSITY, Auburn, AL 36849-5418, USA Phone: (334) 844-1059, Fax: (334) 844-1084,




Dr. Hanqin Tian is Director of International Center for Climate and Global Change Research, Solon and Martha Dixon Professor and Alumni Professor of Ecosystem and Global Ecology in the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences at Auburn University.  He did his postdoctoral study in the Ecosystems Center, Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole after finishing his Ph.D. from the State University of New York College of Environmental Sciences and Forestry and Syracuse University.  Prior to joining Auburn University, he was Associate Professor in Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Kansas, Lawrence; Staff Scientist in MBL Ecosystems Center, Research Scientist in Chinese Academy of Sciences and Research Affiliate in MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, Massachusetts.


Research: His primary research focuses on understanding and quantifying biosphere’s roles in global biogeochemical and hydrological cycles and the climate system, and how human activities have affected Earth’s ecosystem ability in providing people with goods and services including food, energy and water, and providing a scientific basis for solutions to the major environmental challenges facing humanity and the society. His research has covered a range of topics including studies of human and natural impacts on the structure and functioning of terrestrial ecosystems across the globe including tropical forests in the Amazon Basin, Southeast Asia and Africa, boreal and temperate forests in North America and East Asia, grasslands in United States, Central Asia and Africa, croplands in China and United States; Carbon and nutrient (N, P, Si) dynamics at the land-ocean interfaces; and Energy, water and carbon exchanges between land ecosystems and the atmosphere. His research on the global carbon cycle and greenhouse gas emissions is at the leading edge of the field.  The findings from his research have provided a comprehensive assessment of the global change impacts, unique insight into mitigation and adaptation strategies, and guidance on land management practices that maximize carbon storage and minimize water and air pollution. His research has resulted in over 300 publications, many of them were published in the most prestigious journals in Earth and Environmental Sciences, including 10 papers in Nature and Science. Some of his publications have become key references for IPCC and U.S. National Climate Assessment. His work has been frequently featured by national and international media including newspapers (e.g. Washington Post, Boston Global, and New York Times), TV programs (e.g. ABC, CNN, and FOX News) and radio (e.g. BBC-London, NPR). His breakthrough achievements in understanding and quantifying the global and regional greenhouse gas budgets have been recognized by peers as well as a number of prestigious awards as listed below.


Teaching: Dr. Tian’s teaching philosophy is to tell how to fish, not to give fish. He  has been enjoying teaching in different levels of classes by devoting himself to convey and share knowledge and curiosity with students, inspire and help them to develop abilities in critical and independent thinking, equip them to pursue the grand challenges through their creative research, and prepare them for the complex world they will face after stepping off campus. Dr. Tian has advised more than 60 graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and other junior researchers. All his doctoral students published highly impact journal papers when they graduated from his research group. Many of his graduate, postdoctoral fellows and associates have received a number of prestigious awards as well as faculty positions. Few of them have become Department Chair or Center Director. This is a great testament of his effective teaching and mentoring. For example, five of his former Ph.D students and 26 of his former postdoctoral fellows and associates are now faculty members and have established their own successful research programs at various universities. Three of his former Ph. D students received the highly prestigious Early Career Ecologist Award from Ecological Society of America (ESA). Many of his current and former graduate students have received almost all levels of student’s awards, e.g. National  recognition of Outstanding Graduate Student Award from ESA, Merriwether Fellowship AwardDistinguished Dissertation Award, Top 10 Graduate Student, Outstanding International Student AwardHarry Murphy Award for graduate studentGoggans’ Graduate AwardDrummond Fellowship Awards, etc. In addition, He has provided professional training through workshops and summer school for more than 1000 students and young scientists. Dr. Tian is also one of key faculty members in developing a new undergraduate degree program on Geospatial and Environmental Informatics and an interdisciplinary PhD program on Earth System Science.


Service: Dr. Tian also serve as the Leader for the newly established Climate, Human and Earth System Sciences (CHESS) Cluster, which is one of 5 clusters selected and funded by Auburn University. The CHESS Cluster consists of over 40 faculty members from 5 colleges/School. He has served on multiple grant review panels, scientific and advisory committees at both national and international levels, and the Editorial Board of several prestigious scientific journals. He has served as the President of Asian Ecology Section, Ecological Society of America; Board on Oceans, Atmosphere, and Climate, Association of Public and Land-grant Universities; Science Team Member of NASA Carbon Monitoring System. Serving in such capacities has allowed him to develop unique abilities for research leadership, to establish a strong research partnership and network within the USA and internationally. He has a long-term collaboration with faculty from leading institutions such as MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, George Tech, Woods Hole-MBL, and many other Universities.  In the past decade, He have established a strong international partnership and network with leading scientists from 20 countries worldwide. He has been very active in providing scientific leadership and expertise to many national and international organizations.
