My research is in atmospheric sciences and includes atmospheric processes of various scales, from the microphysics of clouds, the dynamics of atmospheric gravity waves, to the global circulation, energy and moisture budgets. I use theory and numerical tools, in combination with observations, to study the interactions among different atmospheric processes, and how such interactions determine the basic structure of the atmosphere.
I have been involved extensively in the implementation and development of both Cloud-Resolving Models (CRMs) and General Circulation Models (GCMs). These numerical models are used to study the physics of the atmosphere, as well as for weather forecasts and climate predictions.
