CIRES researcher Meng Li joined the Regional Chemical Modeling research program in March 2019.
I'm a research scientist at CSL. My major research interests are emissions, multiphase chemistry, atmospheric modeling and top-down evaluations. I've been working on the development of "MIX" anthropogenic emission inventory and the VOC speciation framework over Asia. At CSL, I'm now working on quantifying and evaluating the NOx and VOC emissions at a regional scale using satellite observations, WRF-Chem atmospheric model development, and improvement of model performance based on multiple techniques.
I got my bachelor of Environmental Engineering in Beijing, China in 2011. Then I went to the Tsinghua University, starting my research career on atmospheric chemistry, and I got my Ph.D degree in 2016. Then I went to Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz, Germany as a postdoc. In 2019, I joined the Regional Chemical Modeling group in NOAA CSL as a CIRES research scientist. I feel very fortunate to work with so many great colleagues in my research career.
