Research Statement

Dr. Wong is a postdoctoral associate with Prof. Noelle Selin. He is interested on how terrestrial ecosystems and nitrogen cycle interact with climate and air quality. His experience working as a research assistant with Prof. Amos Tai at Chinese University of Hong Kong sparked his interest in atmosphere-biosphere interactions. Working on the same topic, he received his Ph.D. in Earth and Environment from Boston University, supervised by Prof. Jeffrey Geddes. While retaining interest in atmosphere-biosphere interaction, his desire of doing actionable science motivates his current pursuit of evaluating the air quality impacts of using ammonia as an alternative shipping fuel.
