Yup, that's me... My family and close friends call me just BATAA, so I prefer to hear my short name.

I'm a graduate student at the University of Washington, who is trying to understand glacier history of Northern Mongolia during the Pleistocene. This will help to reconstruct climate of the area where it is in southern edge of the Siberia and understand its influence to the Central Asia.

I got my undergraduate degree in 2002 at the Mongolian University of Science and Technology, School of Geology. Later on I'm inspired by glacial processes and its deposits, seeing the great opportunities to crack the secrets by solving the geologic puzzles.

Although I'm a city-boy who grew up in Ulaanbaatar, my father influenced me enough to enjoy traveling, camping outdoors and photographying. The last one is getting more than just a hobby and makes me more eager to photograph the landscapes and non-ordinary people in the countryside. Seattle is my current stop and the Department of Earth and Space Sciences is now home for me.
