Sai

PhD

Background:

I was born and raised in Tongren, Guizhou, a small but picturesque town in southwest China. I got my bachelor's degree in atmospheric science at Nanjing University in 2016. Then, I started my master study at ETH Zurich, Switzerland in the same major, and accomplished the degree in 2019. Now I am a PhD student in the University of Bergen. During my master's thesis, I investigated the effect of dust on the intensity of North Atlantic tropical cyclones by performing ensemble numerical simulations.


Motivation:

My brother is an instructor pilot, who trains young pilots in the aviation flight school. I was always told about the complicated but regular safety procedures to reduce risks in case of turbulence and extreme weathers, especially during take-off and landing. Even if he is always one of the best, the whole family is still worried about his safety every time he is on duty. As an early-stage researcher in atmospheric sciences and a brother, I am excited and feel honoured to devote my research career on increasing aviation safety, making contributions to reduce the risk. Thus, when I was so lucky to have such an opportunity in LIKE, I joined without a doubt.
