About me

Welcome to my site! My name is Siteng Fan and I am a fourth year graduate stuedent in Planetary Science at Caltech. I am working with Prof. Yuk L. Yung on planetary atmospheres. My current research primarily focuses on photochemistry and haze formation in the atmospheres of Titan and Pluto, using observation from instruments onboard Cassini and New Horizons spacecraft.
