My research interests cover broad areas in present, past and planetary climates. We aim at studying fundamental and frontier problems of Earth and planetary climates. My philosophy is to treat the Earth climate as an integrated and dynamic system, which receives energy from solar radiation, dynamically evolves throughout fluid motions, and involves the interplay of the atmosphere and ocean with the interior of Earth. My approach to these problems is to combine observational data analyses, numerical simulations, and theoretical studies.
