Welcome to Dr. Li's Group

In Dr Li's group, we are pursuing fundamental science projects as well as interdisciplinary research topics, such as the examination of convective mechanisms over the plains east of the Rockies, study of the climate-related precipitation extremes. Our ongoing interdisciplinary projects include the examination of the changing agro-climatic conditions, the feedback of land-surface change to regional weather or hydrological-related extremes using continental scale cloud-resolving coupled atmosphere-land surface-hydrology modeling system, as well as crop-climate-soil moisture interactions and its impact on local heatwaves. We mainly use large-scale climate and earth system modeling as the main tool to solve climate change related problems.

We are always looking for creative and self-motivated students and scholars, who would like to solve various challenges in atmospheric science and climate change!
