I am interested in how to design a suitable landscape structure for conservation purposes. I developed a spatial optimization-based land-use allocation model, termed Dynamically Dimensioned Search Landscape Optimization Planning model (DDSLOP), which can effectively deliver optimized landscape designs for conserving bird species by promoting their habitat suitability. Furthermore, the multi-objective DDSLOP was applied to advance the guidelines of landscape design by taking the trade-off between suitability indices of species and human habitat into consideration. As such, the study can help identify the potential of synergic use of land resources for urban development and biological conservation. Currently, I am focusing on exploring the global influence of urban expansion on biodiversity loss and how the weak governance may shape the urban expansion that affects biological conservation.
