Welcome to my homepage!
I am currently an Advanced Study Program (ASP) postdoctoral fellow at the National Center for Atmospheric Sciences (NCAR). I work with Dr. Stephen Yeager and Dr. Clara Deser on climate variability and predictability on interannual to decadal timescales.
I received my Ph.D. in the Jackson School of Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin. My Ph.D. research was focused on the dynamics and multi-year predictability of El Niño-Southern Oscillation events under the supervision of Dr. Yuko Okumura.
I was born in Yangzhou, a city sitting at the north bank of Yangtze River for over 2,500 years. I was not interested in science at all but stochastically chose Atmospheric Sciences (climatology) as my college major at Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology. This unexpected initial perturbation even brought me to the U.S. for graduate school in 2015. The 'weather' of my daily working days is still stochastic, but I hope the more deterministic but still changing component, the 'climate' of my career, is a joyful choice forever!
