Additional Information

Research Experience:

The possible modulation of madden-Julian Oscillation on the formation and development of tropical depressions near the equator (TBD)

  • Exhibited location of TD where it first intensified into TS near equator with statistical method. Then, analyzed variations of TS near the equator and environmental variables for those TDs that intensified to TS for the first time

The impact of Spring Warm Pool (SWP) in South China Sea on Typhoon’s intensification.

  • Conducted Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model simulation and numerical experiments
  • Conducted PWP ocean mixed layer model experiments

Analysis on eddy kinetic energy of North Atlantic Storm Track in upper and lower layer of troposphere and its relationship with Arctic sea ice.

  • Exhibited the main pattern of North Atlantic Storm Track and analysis its eddy kinetic energy resources and the exchange between different energy type.

Software:

Python, NCL, Fortran, Grads, Matlab

Numerical Modeling:

WRF, PWP ocean mixed layer model, ROMS
