Cloud physics, Atmospheric radiation, Cloud-aerosol interaction

Current Research

My research is focused on aerosol-cloud-precipitation interaction and its effect on climate. With a combined use of numerical modeling and satellite observations, my research is aimed at better understandings of fundamental cloud processes and their effects on global climate through radiative and hydrological processes. To this end, I am engaged in development of novel, innovative methodologies for analyzing new emerging satellite observations and their extensive use for climate model evaluations/improvements. The research is also aided with process-level modelings of cloud and aerosol microphysical processes for their better representations in global climate models.
