Yanlei Feng is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Rosa Lab at the Department of Global Ecology, Carnegie Institution for Science at Stanford. As a researcher in earth science, she is deeply concerned about climate change and its impacts on natural ecosystems and humans. Her Ph.D. dissertation focused on the impact of extreme wind events, including hurricanes and severe thunderstorms, on tropical and temperate forests at multiple scales. Her work has contributed to the understanding of disturbance dynamics in tropical forests and climate change effects on tree mortality as part of the NGEE-Tropics project at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. Moving from climate impacts to climate mitigations, her postdoc research at Rosa Lab in Carnegie focuses on the field of biomass based carbon dioxide removal. She will explore the potential of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage, how it can be deployed properly, and its environmental impacts. In her spare time, she enjoys planting and managing her vegetable garden, running and hiking with her dog, and learning Traditional Chinese medicine.
