Hi there! I am an assistant professor of meteorology at Florida State University. I joined FSU in Spring 2024, and before that I worked as a Sejong science postdoctoral fellow at Colorado State University (CSU) and Kyungpook Nat'l University (KNU).

I graduated from PhD at CSU in 2021 fall under supervision of Prof. Michael Bell. During my PhD, I studied convective structure evolution during tropical cyclone genesis in sheared and dry environments. To better understand the complex, multi-scale tropical cyclogenesis, I used a number of different datasets and methods including radar (airborne, shipborne) data, ensemble high-resolution mesoscale models (WRF and CM1) and large-scale reanalyses.

Current research includes:

  • Tropical Cyclone genesis and intensification
  • Tropical Cyclone microphysics
  • Monsoon and Tropical Cyclone interactions
