​I am a postdoctoral research scientist at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, in the Division of Ocean and Climate Physics. I work with Professor Adam Sobel on atmospheric convection and extreme weather. I was awarded the highly-competitive Lamont-Doherty Postdoctoral Fellow in 2013. I completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University, under the advisement of Professor Zhiming Kuang. Before that, I graduated from Peking University with a Master and a Bachelor degree in 2008 and 2005, respectively.    

I study atmosphere and climate dynamics. Specifically, my research topics include monsoon, atmospheric convection, tropical meteorology, and extreme precipitation events. My research approach is to combine observations, theories, and a hierarchy of models to bridge the gap between the understanding and numerical simulations of complicated climate models.
