Dr. Miao Yu, a former postdoctoral researcher in our group (2011-2014), has been promoted to the rank of Professor in Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology! Miao, congratulations! We are so proud of you!!!




February 2017

Our lab’s 2-paper series on coupled land use-climate projections has been published online now, accessible from the Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems website:



These formally wrapped up our NSF EaSM project. Congratulations and many thanks to Dr. Kazi Ahmed who played a pivotal role in this project! And thanks to the rest of the team for all their contributions and support! It was a great experience working together on this challenging and productive project. 

December 2016

Amir, Lori, and Ying attended the American Geophysical Union fall meeting in San Francisco and gave four presentations:

  1. A New Paradigm of Regional Climate Modeling Accounting for the Role of Oceans: Amazon as a Case Study
  2. Reproducing multi-model ensemble average with Ensemble-averaged Reconstructed Forcings (ERF) in regional climate modeling
  3. Effects of vegetation feedback in modeling the present-day climate over China
  4. Projected Changes of the Ecosystem-Climate System in West Africa using a RCM Driven With Multiple GCMs: Robustness and Uncertainties

Well done!
