Bowen FanGraduate Student

Research Focus:
Planetary Climate

Biography: I got a liberal education at Yuanpei College and received a BS in physics from Peking University. In 2019, I came to the University of Chicago for PhD study in geophysical sciences. 

Research Interests: My research interests cover broad topics in planetary science, from the environmental puzzle of early Mars, to the interior ocean of Europa, and the thriving exoplanets. I mainly use mathematical and numerical methods to study climate dynamics. Currently I am specially interested in the role of volatiles (e.g. water) in determing the habitability and diversity of planets.
