Q1: What did you like best about the program?

I think the coolest thing about this program is that I can take 8 courses to supplement a lot of knowledge besides physical oceanography.

Q2: How has it helped you in your current career?

There is a course in this project about data analysis, and this course is of great help to my current postdoctoral work.

Q3: What was your favourite unit and why?

My favorite unit is QMS 510 and QMS 517 (I mean that these two units were given in a row). As I have mentioned in the second question, I am now working on processing and analyzing ocean observational data, which is quite different with ocean model data as it is more complicated and sometimes messy. I am really happy with that these two units have allowed me to master some techniques so that I can get started with my work quickly.

Q4: Current position

I am currently Postdoctoral Researcher at University of Miami. I now try to develop new efficient and low-cost method to estimate Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation and investigate the meridional connectivity of Atlantic MOC, and its response to wind stress and/or surface buoyancy forcing.
