Yuanyuan Fang

Postdoctoral Research Associate

I received my PhD degree from the Program in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at Princeton University, working with Drs. Larry Horowitz, Arlene Fiore and Hiram Levy at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Lab (GFDL/NOAA), a world-famous lab for its contribution to understanding climate dynamics and earth systems. Currently I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate Aa Princeton's Science, Technology and Environmental Policy Program ( STEP), working with Prof. Denise Mauzerall.

My research interests include: regional air quality, intercontinental pollution transport, the interaction between climate and air quality, and weather extremes. I am also working on evaluating the social impacts and assessing the mitigation options for both of air pollution and climate change.

My research goal is to advance our understanding of the interaction among human activity, air pollution and climate change; finding possible solutions to capture synergies/avoid tradeoffs in addressing the two problems simultaneously.
