Xingli’s research focuses on characterizing and mitigating anthropogenic impacts on the environment, particularly on tropical and freshwater systems. He combines field and experimental work with continental-scale environmental, biological and socioeconomic datasets to answer policy-relevant questions in conservation across multiple ecological and human systems, including the impact of climate change on stream fishes in the southern Appalachians, the impact of coal mining on the environment, and mapping land-cover/use change and their ecological impacts in Southeast Asia.
