Postdoctoral Scholar, Department of the Geophysical Sciences, University of Chicago
Sun’s current research focuses on studying the transient climate behaviors and the physical mechanisms governing them using both state-of-the-art General Circulation Models (GCMs) and one-column models which are computationally efficient. She also maintains and helps build the library of transient climates from GCM outputs.
Sun received her PhD from University of Connecticut in 2012.
