I'm a PhD student working in research associated with the tropical cyclone. My previous master research was the investigation about the mechanisms leading to the rapid intensification of Typhoon Megi (2010). Currently, I'm working on the relative impacts of extratropical and tropical forcing on Atlantic tropical cyclones using the WRF model. The future research may involve the processes leading to the baroclinically influenced tropical cyclogenesis. I'm glad to meet more people interested in TC-related research:)
