Welcome

Welcome to my personal website!

I am currently an research scientist working  at Duke University, Durham, NC. My research interests are broadly at the interactions between air quality, climate change and human health, urban air pollution, and depositions as well as ecosystem effects, by using global and regional chemical transport models (CAM-Chem, GEOS-Chem, CMAQ, & Coupled WRF-CMAQ).

I got my Ph.D. from Gillings School of Global Public Health of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) in 2016. Before I came to UNC, I got my B.S. from Shandong University in 2008 and M.S. from Tsinghua University in 2011 in Environmental Sciences and Engineering.

For my Ph.D. dissertation,I was studying the co-benefits of global and regional greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation on US air quality at fine resolution using dynamical downscaling methods. I developed a comprehensive model framework to study the regional co-benefits via two mechanisms, incorporating the model of WRF, SMOKE and CMAQ. I am also interested in the health mortality benefit analysis from the improved air quality as a result of GHG emission reductions. I also use global chemistry transport models to study the global emission shifting on the effect of global tropospheric ozone changes.  For my past studies in THU, I used the global Chemical Transport Model GEOS-Chem to study the domestic and foreign influences on the seasonal and spatial changes of ozone in China.
