Profile

I graduated with a bachelor degree in Environmental Science from University of East Anglia in the summer of 2015. Generally I am interested in atmospheric chemistry and air pollution. My undergraduate dissertation is about analysing the temporal and special Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) variation in China from 2000 to 2013. In 2014, I participate in a research on aerosol modelling and monitoring in Qingdao and helped them collect AOD data by using lidar.

Current research
Air pollution in China has become a major issue for public health. The assessment of human exposure to pollution and ability to test potential policy interventions are dependent on the ability to simulate pollutant concentrations across very large urban – so called megacities. The main aim of my PhD program is to examine the factors controlling air pollution in China by using a 3-D global model (UM-UKCA). The main focus on this program will be on the interaction of biogenic and anthropogenic emission and their impact on air quality.
