Welcome to my website. I am an Assistant
Project Leader at the IBS Center for Climate
Physics (ICCP) and Research Professor at Pusan National
University (PNU) in Busan, South Korea. At ICCP, I
am leading the group "Tropical climate dynamics: past, present,
Additionally, I hold a position as
affiliate researcher at the Department of
Atmospheric Sciences in the School of Ocean
and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) at the University of Hawai'i at
and I am a close collaborator with various people at the University of
Washington Atmospheric Sciences department.
Before this appointment, I was a NOAA Climate &
Global Change postdoctoral fellow at the University of
Washington Atmospheric Sciences department, working
Bitz. Before this, I was
working as a graduate research assistant (and briefly as a
postdoctoral researcher) with Fei-Fei
Jin at the University
of Hawai'i at Mānoa.
I try to understand the fundamental dynamics of
climate variability on various timescales and how this
knowledge might help us to improve predictions, especially
in the tropics and the Monsoon regions.
Furthermore, I am interested in the dynamics of greenhouse
warming patterns and linkages between the tropics and the
cryosphere. More recently I also started investigating
linkages between climate variability and the marine carbon
cycle as well as climate impacts on society and food
security. More information about my research,
publications, CV, and a number of useful links can be
found on this website.
