Yuchun Lin, PhD, recently joined CIGLR as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working with Assistant Research Scientist Dr. Ayumi Fujisaki-Manome. Their research uses numerical modeling and data analyses to understand Great Lakes ice hotspots, ice cover predictions, and wave-ice interactions. Dr. Lin’s previous research includes physical, biological, and climatological studies of the ocean and atmosphere.
