Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

  • Parameterization of atmospheric moist convection in global climate models
  • Global atmospheric model development with emphasis on the representations of convection, clouds, atmospheric boundary layer turbulence, and their interactions with radiation, surface processes, circulation and climate
  • Cloud feedback and climate sensitivity and their connections to atmospheric convection
  • Simulation of global hurricane climatology, variability and future change using global high resolution climate models.
  • Weather and climate extremes in a changing climate
  • Numerical simulations and numerical methods
