My research focuses on measuring the amount of carbon stored in the forests of Myanmar and evaluating their values for biodiversity conservation and socioeconomic development of the country. The specific objectives of this research are: to evaluate the value of Myanmar’s forest resources in terms of above-ground carbon stocks and biodiversity conservation values using forest inventories data in combination with remote sensing techniques; to study species composition and stand structure of the forests according to the climatic factors and geolocations; to identify the potential REDD+ project sites and evaluate their conservation value that could alleviate pressure on the natural forest ecosystems;  to analyze the contribution of forests to the national economy of a developing country and socioeconomic development via the REDD+ mechanism; and to study a regional REDD+ mechanism that seeks to incentivize local communities and government to pursue sustainable forest management.
