Welcome to my homepage!

I am an Atmospheric Scientist. I solve scientific problems related to atmospheric composition, including air pollutants and greenhouse gases, species that are key to the environment, climate, ecosystem and human, using numerical model and observational data. I study the sources, sinks, chemical, physical and dynamical evolution of these species to understand their variations and trends, as well as their impacts on and complex interactions with human society and the nature ecosystem.

I recently joined the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD). By applying solid science to inform policy making, I work to understand air quality issues and to improve air quality for all bay area residents, especially the disadvantaged communities.

I was a Senior Research Associate in Carnegie Institution for Science and Stanford University. I was a STEP Fellow at the Science, Technology and Environmental Policy Program in Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs in Princeton University. I received my PhD degree from the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program in Princeton University in September 2010.
