Personal profile

Personal profile

I'm an atmospheric environment researcher at the Department of Health and Environmental Sciences of Xian Jiaotong Liverpool University. With a background in atmospheric science, I'm particularly interested in air quality studies from climate/weather perspectives. My research expertise lies in the development and utilization of 3-dimensional atmospheric chemical transport models to investigate a wide range of scientific questions. My previous research primarily focused on studying the sources, transport, and physio-chemical processes of air pollutants. Currently, I'm in the process of establishing my research group and working on interdisciplinary studies relating to ecology and health. I also have a keen interest in computational data science. I love coding and try to apply statistical tools (including machine learning) to my environmental science research. If you are interested in potential research collaborations, pursuing postgraduate studies, or seeking an undergraduate internship with me, please do not hesitate to reach out.
