TEACHING AND SUPERVISION
2018. Course assistant for formation and growth of atmospheric aerosols
2019. Course assistant for the 3rd course on climate science at high latitudes: eScience for linking Arctic measurements and modeling in Abisko
Wenjuan Yu(2023.02-present), co-supervised doctoral researcher at University of Helsinki. Topic related to Arctic particle formation processes.
Jiali Shen(2018.05-2023.04), co-supervised doctoral researcher at University of Helsinki. Topic related to dimethyl sulfide oxidation and marine particle formation. I started mentoring her as a senior student and now as a researcher. I work tightly with her since the beginning, conveying my knowledge on instrumentation, kinetic modeling, chamber experiments, scientific writing and other elements needed to be an independent researcher.
