About Me

I am currently a PhD student at UC Santa Cruz. I mainly study how different atmospheric processes operate together on terrestrial planets. I work with Xi Zhang to study chemistry, clouds and dynamics in the Venus atmosphere. I also work with Francis Nimmo to study geophysics of icy satellites.

In 2011-2015, I pursued my bachelor degree in atmospheric science at the University of Science and Technology of China. In 2015-2018, I was a graduate student in atmospheric science at the same university. In 2018, I came to UC Santa Cruz to pursue a PhD in planetary science.

I am going to graduate in one or two years. Currently, I am looking for a postdoc position to continue my research in planetary atmospheres.
