I’m a Doctoral Candidate of Climate Dynamics at University of Southern California. I got my bachelor degree in applied mathematics at Nankai University in Tianjin, China. I’m a mathematician by training, and interested in the application of math to real-world problems. So I walked from the math side to geoscience in 2010 after finishing my undergraduate study, and now I’m doing statistical climatology with Dr. Julien Emile-Geay in the Climate Dynamics group at USC. My goal is to bridge the gap between applied mathematics, statistics and climate science. I’m enjoying my time at USC, programming to understand past climate, describing climate change to friends and relatives, and talking about science with mathematicians, statisticians as well as climate scientists.
