I am a fourth-year PhD student in University of Washington, Seattle. My advisor is Prof. Becky Alexander in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences.  My research in atmospheric chemistry involves both modeling and laboratory measurements.

I obtained my bachelor degree in Sun Yat-sen University, China. Motivated by my strong curiosity in oversea education and life, I attended the master program Meteorology, Physical Oceanography and Climate in Utrecht University, Netherlands. For my master project, I used GC-IRMS to determine the isotopic signatures of soil production and uptake of H2, under the supervison of Prof. Thomas Röckmann and Dr. Elena Popa.

My current research is about modeling the interaction between sulfur and halogen in the troposphere with GEOS-Chem, advised by Prof. Becky Alexander. This is based on the measurements of oxygen-17 excess (Δ17O) of sulfate in the MBL from our previous study, which suggests HOBr/HOCl could be responsible for 30-50% of sulfate formation in the MBL.
