I am now working with Dr. Robert J. Trapp, on frequency change of tornadoes in China due to climate change. I'm also interested in Thunderstrom dynamics and climate dynamics. 

Research Interests

Climate Variability and Change

Thunderstorm Dynamics and Hazards

Weather and Climate Risk

Research Description

My present research is to explore the change in possibility of tornadoes via analyzing and comparing GCM model outputs of different time period. To evaluate the risk of tornadoes, Significant Tornado Parameters are calculated. By comparing the GCM historical data and ssp data outputs, the change of tornado frequency due to climate change is to be inferred, which is a implicit method. Currently we are working on CESM2 models, and hopefully we are also going to work on other models.
