     In principal, my research focuses on atmospheric chemistry modeling using GEOS-Chem, by employing ground-based, aircraft campaign and satellite observations, to better understand the atmospheric compositions.  

Research Interests: 

  • Sources, evolution and transport of carbonaceous aerosols;
  • Sensitivity of atmospheric chemistry and air quality to changes in anthropogenic emissions; 
  • Impact of future land cover/land use, and climate changes on biomass burning;
  • Climate-biosphere-chemistry interaction;
  • Aerosol-cloud interaction.   

News:  I will present my work at WWOSC2014 this summer with travel support from US NSF.
