She also works closely with University of Dayton.

Research interests

Her research focuses on understanding of climate variability and change, particularly global and regional mean and extreme precipitation. She is currently working on the CSSP project on East Asia climate variability and extremes to better understand the thermodynamics of the East Asian summer monsoon.

She also works on identify regional heavy precipitation events, with their high intensity, large impact area and long duration, which have tremendous impacts on society and ecosystems, and further explore the changes in these extreme events and its associated large scale circulations under global warming.
