Ching-Yao Lai

Assistant Professor of Geosciences and Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences

Andlinger Center Associated Faculty

Location: 418C Guyot Hall
Phone Number: 609-937-6329
Email Address: cylai@princeton.edu

Research Description:

Dr. Ching-Yao Lai specializes in geophysics and climate science using mathematical models, laboratory experiments, machine-learning and simulations to explore how fluid flows, deformable structures, crack and interfacial flows interact. Her recent work combines deep-learning and physics-based models to predict the disintegration of ice shelves in a warming climate.
