ABOUT ME

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the UCLA Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences. The focus of my research is to understand the interactions between near inertial waves, mesoscale eddies, and submesoscale fronts and filaments in the North Atlantic Subpolar Gyre, which is the target location for the Near Inertial Shear and Kinetic Energy in the North Atlantic Experiment (NISKINE).

I obtained my Bachelor Degree of Science in Marine Sciences at the Ocean University of China in June 2015, and Ph.D. in Quantitative Marine Science at the University of Tasmania in December 2019.

My PhD work focused on the internal lee wave field in the deep Southern Ocean. Specifically, I seek to understand the impacts of internal lee waves on the Southern Ocean circulation and its response to changes in wind stress.
