Dr. Baojing Gu was trained as an ecologist with an emphasis on biogeochemical N cycling analysis and modelling from Zhejiang University and the University of Alberta and McGill University in Canada. After his PhD, he introduced econometrics methods to N cycling analyses to understand the cost and benefit of Nr use. Dr Gu has published over 50 papers in peer-reviewed journals, including some top-ranked journals, e.g., PNAS, Nature Climate Change, Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, Global Environmental Change, Environmental Science & Technology.


Dr Gu's major contributions are in the areas of large-scale biogeochemical N cycles. Using interdisciplinary approaches that include mass balance, life cycle analysis, ecological modelling, meta-analysis, remote sensing, and field monitoring, Dr Gu explores the interactions between regional/global N cycles and human activities. Currently, he is co-leading the cost and benefit analyses of global Nr use under the framework of International Nitrogen Management System (INMS) to improve our understanding on the interactions between human and the N cycles.
