Jianxiong, working with Prof. Daniel Jacob as a postdoc, is very much an international man of science. Born in Shanghai China, his academic career in the sciences has taken him around the world. As an undergraduate he studied math in Belgium, which laid the foundation for a master’s in fluid mechanics in Paris, which in turn set the stage for a PhD in environmental science in Zurich. Now working at Harvard, he is trying to better understand methane emissions in North America through inversions of aircraft and satellite observations.
