I am the Weathernews Chair Professor, George Lynn Cross Research Professsor at the School of Meteorology (SOM), and Director of the Center for Analysis and Prediction of Storms (CAPS), University of Oklahoma (OU), USA. 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 and Scientific Director. I became the Director of CAPS in 2006. I was the main developer of the open-source community Advanced Regional Prediction System (ARPS), an end-to-end regional, nonhydrostatic atmospheric modeling and numerical weather prediction system that includes complete data assimilation systems.

I hold a B.S. degree (1984) in meteorology from Nanjing University, China, and a Ph.D. degree (1989) in meteorology from University of Reading, U.K.

My research interests include research and development on advanced modeling, data assimilation and numerical weather prediction techniques and systems, the simulation, prediction, dynamics, and predictability of severe and high-impact weather from synoptic down to microscales (e.g., tornadoes), the assimilation of remote sensing observations  from platforms such as radar and satellites, the modeling of environmental processes and regional climate, the modeling of environmental processes and regional climate, and the use machine learning techniques for improving weather forecasting.

I regularly teach graduate level classes Objective Analysis and Data Assimilation (OBAN2019) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD2023) and have taught undergraduate-level courses Physical Mechanics (PM2000), Mesoscale Meteorology (MM2015), Principles of Research and Communication in Meteorology(METR 3334). I am teaching a new senior/graduate-level course, Application of Meteorological Theory to Severe Thunderstorm Forecasting (METR4403) in spring 2023.
