About

I am an Associate Research Scholar in the Department of Geosciences at Princeton University, working in the group of Prof. Gabriel Vecchi. My research is focused on better understanding climate variability and change on broad timescales from sub-seasons to millennia, as well as why the mean climate of the planet is the way it is.

I received my B.S and M.S. from Peking University in China, supervised by Prof. Benkui Tan; and Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences from Columbia University, with the dissertation The Hydroclimate of East Africa: Seasonal cycle, Decadal Variability, and Human induced Climate Change, supervised by Prof. Richard Seager and Prof. Mark A. Cane.
