||I am a professor at the School of Meteorology (SOM),
and Director of the Center for Analysis and Prediction of Storms (CAPS), University of Oklahoma (OU). I also hold the Weathernews Chair in Applied Meteorology. Before joining SOM in 1999 as a faculty member, I was with CAPS for 10 years, starting as a post-doc and ending as a senior scientist. I remained as the CAPS scientific director until resuming the director position in 2006. I was the main developer of the Advanced Regional Prediction System (ARPS), and continue to use it for a variety of research.
I hold a B.S. degree in meteorology from Nanjing University, China, and a Ph.D. degree in meteorology from University of Reading, U.K.
My research interests include the development of advanced numerical techniques, and modeling and data assimilation systems, the simulation, prediction, dynamics, and predictability of mesoscale and convective scale weather systems, tornado dynamics, advanced data assimilation and retrieval techniques for radar and other high-resolution observations.
have taught graduate level classes
Objective Analysis and Data Assimilation (OBAN2014)
and Computational Fluid Dynamics
(CFD2015) and undergraduate-level courses Physical Mechanics (PM2000)
and Mesoscale Meteorology (MM2015).
