Research Summary

My research interest lies in the behavior and the interactions of earth system across multiple temporal and spatial scales and the solutions to real world problems in a broad array of climate science and environmental policy. I apply atmospheric inverse models, atmospheric chemistry transport models and climate models, along with measurements from surface sites, aircraft, satellite, to study regional air quality, long-range air pollution transport, the chemistry-climate interaction and the biogeochemical cycle. I also use climate models to understand the social risks and opportunities associated with climate change and air pollution.
