I’m Yuxi Suo, a graduate student in NU’s Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences. I’m originally from China, where I was born in Xi’an, its oldest city, but grew up in Shenzhen, the youngest. I attended UCLA and obtained my BA in Geography and Environmental Studies in 2016.
At NU, I’m keenly interested in exploring the impacts of anthropogenic climate change, in particular the effects of altered climate on socio-economic factors. I aim to research air pollution and public health, with a focus on improving societal awareness and informing adaptation measures. As a human geographer with a strong geospatial background, I am particularly interested in applying my remote sensing skills to design sustainable urban regimes that could help mitigate extreme environmental threats.
I’m passionate about making my research accessible and interesting to the general public through both my blog and through photography.
