Yelin Jiang joined the Lab as a new PhD student in Environmental Engineering. Yelin received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Ecology from the Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology. His PhD dissertation research will be on the general topic of land-atmosphere interaction and drought. Welcome, Yelin!
Congratulations to Congsheng Fu! His papers on hydraulic redistribution and its impact on the terrestrial biogeochemical cycles have been published in Global Change Biology (with Zoe Cardon, Marine Biological Labs) and Geophysical Research Letters!
Dr. Wang attended the “Robert Dickinson Symposium on Earth System Modeling: Past, Present and Future” held at the University of Texas-Austin to honor Bob, and talked about “Terrestrial Ecosystem-Climate Interactions in Earth System Modeling: A Regional Perspective”. The symposium was a great success, thanks to the hard work of the organizing committee led by Dr. Zong-Liang Yang! On her way back from Austin, Dr. Wang stopped by Washington DC for the PIRE project annual meeting and also visited Dr. Eugenia Kalnay and gave a talk on terrestrial ecosystem-climate interaction at the University of Maryland. A very productive trip!
Our lab welcomes M.S. student Tengyu Ding. Tengyu received his B.S. degree in Hydrology and Water Resources from the Northwest Agriculture and Forestry University in China. His research focuses on modeling the terrestrial hydrological cycle. Welcome, Tengyu!
Amir successfully defended his PhD dissertation, and is moving to a postdoc position at UCLA. Congratulations, Dr. Erfanian! We will miss you!
Congratulations to Amir Erfanian and Lori Fomenko whose ClimaMedia project was featured in UConn Today.

The lab welcomes Xiaoming Sun, a postdoctoral associate with keen interest in precipitation extremes and atmospheric convection. Dr. Sun received his PhD degree from Duke University under the supervision of Professor Ana Barros in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and M.S. degree from UConn CEE. Welcome back, Xiaoming!
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!!!
Congratulations to Amir Erfanian! Amir’s paper documenting the unprecedented Amazon drought (2015-16) was published in Scientific Reports!
