About me

I am Yuan-Jen Lin, a postdoctoral research scientist at Center for Climate Systems Research, Columbia University / NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York City.

I study large-scale climate dynamics and climate change. My research interests include (1) climate feedback and sensitivity (2) interactions between ocean, clouds, and radiation (3) ocean circulation under climate change.
