DGE Researcher Profile
I am a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at the Carnegie Institution Department of Global Ecology at Stanford University. I use a wide-spectrum approaches related to ecology, environment science, and multi-disciplinary to analyze Environmental and Earth Systems. I have researched radiation partitioning and its relation to environmental factors above a meadow ecosystem on the Tibetan Plateau to get better understanding of the early detection and prediction of climate warming. I have also conducted research of the impacts of fossil fuel utilization on atmospheric environment, and control methods by modeling air pollutant emissions and computational fluid dynamic simulation. Now my research interests focus on energy and climate change. I try to find solutions for global warming by analyzing the impacts of energy utilization on climate change through energy system analysis perspectives.
