Yangyang Xu is an assistant professor in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at Texas A&M University. His research interests are broadly related to climate and air pollution using a variety of numerical models. He received his Ph.D degree from Scripps Institute of Oceanography in 2014 and worked as a postdoc fellow at National Center for Atmospheric Research.
Andrew Dessler is a professor of Atmospheric Sciences and the Earl F. Cook Professor of Geosciences at Texas A&M University. His educational background includes a B.A. in physics from Rice University and a Ph.D. in chemistry from Harvard University. Andrew Dessler is a climate scientist who studies both the science and politics of climate change. His scientific research revolves around climate feedbacks, in particular how water vapor and clouds act to amplify warming from the carbon dioxide that humans emit. Based on his research and policy experience, he has authored two books on climate change: The science and politics of global climate change: A guide to the debate (Cambridge University Press, 2nd ed. 2010, co-written with Edward Parson), and Introduction to modern climate change (Cambridge University Press, 2nd ed. 2015).
