Meet Our Newest Arrivals

Sept. 26, 2022

Welcome!

Qianqian Song

Qianqian joins CIMES from the University of Maryland, as a postdoctoral research associate working with Paul Ginoux and David Paynter. Qianqian's research will focus on studying the impact of dust mineralogy on atmospheric radiation and climate

Theresa Morrison

Theresa joins CIMES from the University of California, San Diego, as a postdoctoral research associate working with Bob Hallberg. Theresa's research will center on improving our understanding of interactions between the ocean and floating ice-shelves and the development of an interactive ocean and Lagrangian ice shelf and iceberg model.    

Tsung-lin Hsieh

Tsung-Lin, an AOS alum, joins CIMES from the High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI) at Princeton, as a postdoctoral research associate working with Lucas Harris. Tsung-Lin's research will focus on examining hydroclimate changes in the Western U.S. under warmed climates in an experimental GFDL global storm-resolving model.   research will be on improving our understanding of interactions between the ocean and floating ice-shelves and the development of an interactive ocean and Lagrangian ice shelf and iceberg model.   

Minki Hong

Minki joins CIMES from Texas A&M University, as a professional specialist working with Elena Shevliakova. Minki's research will center on implementing new, scale-aware, soil-groundwater-stream-plants hydrological capabilities in LM4.2, coupling these capabilities to the atmosphere and ocean components of the GFDL Earth System Model (ESM), as well as evaluating these interactions with multi-source hydrological observations and performing simulations under climate change scenarios. 

Wenda Zhang

Wenda joins CIMES from Stony Brook University, as a postdoctoral research associate working with Steve Griffies. Wenda's research involves studying the vertical structure of mesoscale and submesoscale ocean eddies in idealized models, and then developing parameterizations of this structure for use in global climate and prediction models.

Yi-Hung Kuo

Yi-Hung joins CIMES from UCLA, as a postdoctoral research associate working with Ming Zhao. Yi-Hung's research will be focused on nonlocal effects of buoyancy in representations of moist-convective processes.

Veeshan Narinesingh

Veeshan joins CIMES from the City University of New York (CUNY), as a postdoctoral research associate working with Yi Ming and Steve Garner. Veeshan's research focuses on understanding the response of atmospheric blocks to global warming and implications for extreme events.

Tristan Abbott

Tristan joins CIMES from MIT, as a postdoctoral research associate working with Yi Ming. Tristan will conduct research on the impacts of aerosols on deep convection, cirrus clouds, and Earth's radiative balance.

Benjamin Le Roy

Benjamin joins CIMES from the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), as a postdoctoral research associate working with Keith Dixon. Benjamin's research involves developing modeling techniques, testing, and the analysis of multi-decadal downscaled climate projections used in heat and human health applications, with an emphasis on urban regions of the northeastern United States.

Zachary Labe

Zack joins CIMES from Colorado State University, as a postdoctoral research associate working with Nate Johnson and Tom Delworth. Zack's research will center on conducting analyses to improve our understanding of the causes of droughts and temperature extremes and advancing our ability to rapidly identify and attribute such extreme events in near real-time.

Marco Corrales

Marco joins CIMES from the University of Oregon, as a postdoctoral research associate working with Jessica Luo and Charlie Stock. Marco's research will focus on evaluating the global size distribution of marine plankton and particles, using models and observations.
