Xiangyu Luan

I am a Ph.D. student who has research interests in climate change and climatic compound events.


My current project focuses on the effects of climate change on the agroecosystems, which is supervised by Giulia Vico and co-supervised by Riccardo Bommarco. In particular, we try to explore how combined drought and heat stress impact the crops, which is of great concern given the increased risk of drought and heat compound events in many places due to climate change. Our project is mainly based on modeling approaches to assessing the combined drought and heat effects on affecting crop canopy temperature and yields. Further, we aim to provide adaptive solutions to ensure food security in the face of compound events.
