Dr. Wang, Mengyuan

Postdoctoral Fellow

Her research interests focus on quantitative reconstructions of mean annual air temperature (MAAT) and sea surface temperature (SST) from subtropical-tropical terrestrial (e.g. peat, lacustrine sediment and surface soils) and coastal archives.  She is expert in applying biomarker techniques such as Glycerol dialkyl glycerol tetraethers (GDGTs) and long-chain unsaturated alkenone for Quaternary paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental reconstructions.
