Research Interests

  • Asian Summer Monsoon changes in the late Pleistocene using organic (e.g., Alkanoic acid hydrogen isotopes and GDGT) and inorganic (e.g., grain size, element concentrations) proxies in lake sediments.
  • Integrating hydroclimate proxies and climate model outputs
  • Thermal dynamics of lakes using model simulations and observational data
