Dr Lili Xia
Dr Lili Xia is a Research Associate at Rutgers University working with Dr Alan Robock. She graduated in 2014 with a PhD from the Atmospheric Sciences Graduate Program at Rutgers University – New Brunswick. She has been working on simulating sulphate injection geoengineering using climate models and focusing on estimating climate change impacts on agriculture, ecosystem, and air pollutants (e.g. surface ozone) under geoengineering. She actively collaborates with the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP) and the Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP), to introduce geoengineering to the crop modelling community as one of the future climate scenarios. She is also interested in the interaction between land and the atmosphere through the biosphere. Another project Dr Xia is working on is to evaluate global agriculture impacts from a simulated regional nuclear conflict. She has published 11 peer-reviewed papers and 2 book chapters on her research.
