I obtained my B.S. in Environmental Science from Peking University. I am currently working on the ice cores drilled in Allan Hills Blue Ice Areas, East Antarctica in the 2015-16 field season. Allan Hills could potentially preserve ice older than 2 million years, providing an exciting opportunity to study the Antarctica climate and atmospheric composition since the early Pleistocene.
