Welcome to my webpage! I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Michigan. I work with Prof. Chris Poulsen on simulating the Earth's climate in the deep past. We are especially interested in the Paleocene Eocene Thermal Maximum occurred around 55 million years ago, which is the greatest warmth in the last 65 million years. We hope to draw lessons from this past warm period for the future anthropogenic warming.

I received a PhD in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2017. I worked with Prof. Zhengyu Liu on various paleoclimate topics, including the evolution and dynamics of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation during the last deglaciation, the Holocene temperature conundrum, the ENSO strength at the last glacial maximum, as well as interpretation and simulating of oxygen isotopes in paleoclimate archives.

Before that, I studied in Peking University in China and received both B.S. and M.S. in atmospheric sciences. I was supervised by Prof. Haijun Yang.
