Short Bio:

Currently I am an Assistant Professor at Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering and RENEW Institute of University at Buffalo.

Before joining UB, I was an Atmospheric Physicist at Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

I received my Ph.D. at Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Princeton University in 2015. I received my B.S. degree from College of Environmental Sciences, Peking University in 2009. I also hold a B.A. degree in economics from China Center for Economic Research, Peking University.

Research Interests:

  • Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics
  • Remote Sensing
  • Molecular Spectroscopy

Recent Projects:

  • We are pushing the frontier of satellite observations by oversampling millions of overlapping satellite pixels. Features at spatial scales much finer than the resolution of each single observation will emerge. This technique will help us better understand the sources and fates of atmospheric species that pollute the air and change the climate.
