Bio: Ye Mu is a PhD candidate of climate science with the University of California, Santa Barbara's Department of Geography and graduate student researcher at the Earth Research Institute (ERI). He is an intern for the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Earth System Science Internship (NESSI) in Boulder, Colorado, USA, in 2023. Before joining the University of California, Santa Barbara in September, 2021, Ye completed his Master of Science degree at the San Diego State University and was a research assistant for two years.
Ye's research uses large datasets and models to understand atmospheric systems and climatic modes on the variability of climate extremes. Research interests are climate extremes, precipitation, land-atmosphere feedbacks, hydrologic processes, and climate change.
