Research Assistant Professor Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering

Dr. Xian joined the Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering at Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) in July 2020. She completed her B.S. in Atmospheric Sciences at SUN YAT-SEN University in 2009 and Ph.D. in Space Physics at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2014. Prior to her arrival at the SUSTech, Tao served as a Postdoctoral Researcher and Associate Researcher at USTC and a Postdoctoral Researcher at University of Oklahoma. She is studying tropopause dynamics, stratosphere-troposphere exchange, and wind resource assessment.
