I graduated from Anhui Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics(AIOFM), Chinese Academy of Sciences(CAS). During that three years, I was focused on Environmental Optics, especially on remote sensing of air pollution using ground DOAS(Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy) instruments and Earth observation satellites (OMI). I used the satellite observations to estimate the NOX emissions as well as the NO2 column space/temporal variations combing Mobil-DOAS. Prior to my graduation with a Masters degree, I went to Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute(KNMI, Netherlands) as an intern for 5 months, and continued focusing on estimates of NOX emissions.
