Cheng Li's profile picture

I am a NASA Postdoctoral Program fellow at Jet Propulsion Laboratory working on the Juno mission. I received my doctoral degree in Planetary Science at California Institute of Technology. I'm generally interested in all kinds of physics related to fluid motions. My Ph.D. thesis is about moist convection and atmospheric dynamics on giant planets.

I love outdoor activities such as hiking and cycling. I enjoy the sunshine in the Southern California.
