BS, Atmospheric Science, Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology
Chen Xing, a PhD student, received a Bachelor degree in Atmospheric Sciences from Nanjing University of Information Science & Technology (NUIST) in 2017. Before attending Bren, Chen was working as a research assistant at NUIST, focusing on global surface temperature and polar atmsopheric responses after large volcanic eruptions through multi-model comparisons. Her finding points out deficiencies of current climate models for stratospheric processes and air-sea interactions. Her previous researching experience also included investigation of volcanic effects on El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and its associated trigger mechanisms. Chen is interested in climate dynamics and mechanisms, climate responses to volcanic forcing, and climate modeling. At the Bren School, Chen will focus on ENSO and interdecadal variability from the present to future global warming scenarios through large ensemble climate model simulations. She hopes to bring different views on climate variability using climate models.
