Chuixiang Yi received all his degrees in China – B.S. in Physics from Liaoning Normal University, M.S. in theoretical physics from Northeast Normal University, and Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences from Nanjing University. Before he moved to US, Dr. Yi was associate Professor at Beijing Normal University. He has ten-years postdoc research experience across many US campuses, UC Berkeley, University of Minnesota, Pen State University, University of Colorado, and now is associate Professor at Queens College of City University of New York. Dr. Yi is a micrometeorologist and theoretical modeler working on issues of how climate change, affects the carbon cycle, and from that knowledge try to predict environmental changes in the future.
