Yan Bai, PhD, Young Research Fellow, Master Tutor. Yan Bai has a BS in school of business from Renmin University of China, an MS in college of Earth and Environmental Sciences from Lanzhou University, and a PhD in Faculty of Geographical Science from Beijing Normal University. He spent a year-long visit at University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 2018-2019. Yan Bai’s research seeks to better understand ecohydrology, plant hydraulics, plant drought response and model-data fusion in drylands.
