Research Interest

My Research interests are primarily in the fields of tropical meteorology and dynamics, including large-scale atmospheric dynamics and tropical cyclone dynamics. My work focuses on understanding the fundamental dynamics and physics governing atmospheric motions through observational analysis, theoretical and numerical modeling, with the ultimate goal of improving our prediction ability.
