Aquatic ecosystems provide diverse ecosystem services, but now are under the pressure of human socioeconomic development and climate change. During my master's experience at Wageningen University, I started to work on lake ecological modelling to simulate the critical nutrient load for shifting lakes from a clear state to a turbid state or vice versa under different scenarios using PCLake+. After that, I continued to work on PCLake+ in my internship at NIOO. I assessed the lake ecosystem resilience related to macrophytes biodiversity by increasing vegetation functional groups in the PCLake+. Now, with the interest of aquatic ecological modelling, my main focus is developing the greenhouse gas emission module for PCLake+ and PCDitch.
