Xinyuan Wei

Postdoctoral Research Associate


Xinyuan Wei is a postdoctoral fellow in the Earth System Modeling Group. Xinyuan received his Ph.D. in Forest Resources from the University of Maine in 2020. Xinyuan’s research focuses primarily on understanding the terrestrial biosphere carbon cycle with field measurements, remote sensing data, and process-based earth system models. His work involves analyzing the effects of fire on the global terrestrial biosphere carbon cycle, investigating the interactions between climate extremes and the land-atmospheric carbon flux, modeling the lateral terrestrial-aquatic dissolved organic carbon flux, as well as developing, improving, and applying earth system models.
