I am a post-doctorate researecher at the Land System Modeling Team of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). I am currently working with Dr. Ruby Leung on regional climate simulations, hydroclimate extreme events and the applications of machine learning.
Before joining PNNL, I got my Ph.D. degree from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington. I was a student of the Sustainability, Satellites, Water, and Environment (SASWE) research group. My Ph.D. study focused on the applications of atmospheric and hydrologic sciences in addressing real world problems. I developed the assistative methods to the engineering safety designs of high-hazard infrastructures (large hydropower dams, nuclear plants, etc.), based on a mixture of atmospheric numerical models, climate model projections and data analysis.
I will be giving a talk on the atmospheric rivers, extreme precipitation and water resources over the western U.S. at the CEPSYM at UC Davis, 06-30, 2020
One paper I co-authored based on the Permafrost Carbon Network (PCN) project has been published on The Cryosphere. Feel free to check it out!
