Siyuan has focused on vegetation dynamics and water cycles under climate change and changing land use. She has now joined the Integrated Assessment Project to examine the land use and land use change driven by both climate change and socio-economic systems, and the feedback towards natural and human sectors. This two-way assessment could help to understand effectiveness and feasibility of mitigation policies as land use, e.g. food/biofuels, forestry and natural conservation are closely related to other economic sectors.

4CMR works closely with the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance, with overlapping interests, skills and projects. C-EENRG is also located in the Department of Land Economy, with a core mission to "conduct integrative research on the governance of environmental transitions, understood as social and technological processes driven by environmental constraints that lead to fundamental changes in social organisation."
