I received my Ph.D. from the University of Southern California in 2015, and got my bachelor degree in applied mathematics from the Nankai University in 2006. I’m a mathematician by training, and facinated by the applications of math to real-world problems. I walked from the math side to geoscience in 2010 after finishing my undergraduate study, and now I’m working on cool topics in 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.
I defended my PhD theis in May 2015, and am actively looking for research opportunities that aim to tackle real-world climate/environmental problems with statisical tools. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any suitable openings!
