Personal info

Here is my current CV .

I grew up in Shanghai, China, a city near the Yangtze River. My name in Chinese is 王含.

I attended the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei for my undergraduate studies, where I developed an interest in physics. I then moved to New York, USA, where I earned a Ph.D. from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences under the supervision of Oliver Bühler. There, I was exposed to beauties in geophysical fluid dynamics. A fateful event was learning about the power laws in the Gage-Nastrom spectrum and their (dis)connections with classical two-dimensional theories. My Ph.D. work developed analytical methods to help us gain dynamical insights from in-situ observational data. My journey continued at the University of Toronto, where I spent 1.5 years working with Nicolas Grisouard, mainly exploring applications of deep learning algorithms to help disentangle balanced and unbalanced flows. In April 2022, I began my second postdoc at the University of Edinburgh, supervised by Jacques Vanneste and Bill Young on the interactions between deep-water surface gravity waves and currents.

During my spare time, I like learning more about nature. Here is my profile on my favorite social network.
