I am an assistant professor in Department of Atmospheric Sciences at National Taiwan University.

Before moving back to my Alma Mater, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Department of  Climate, Atmospheric Science, and Physical Oceanography, Scripps Institute of Oceanography, hosted by Professor Shang-Ping Xie. I completed my PhD in May 2013 in Department of Atmospheric Sciences, University of Washington. My advisor was Professor Dargan Frierson.

I am interested in understanding global atmospheric dynamics and its interactions with clouds, aerosols, and ocean.

At present, I am actively researching topics involving:

  1. -global energy budget, meridional energy transport, and zonal mean circulation of the atmosphere

  2. -extratropical influence on the location and displacement of the ITCZ (inter-tropical convergence zone, a band of persistent precipitation in the deep tropics)
