Research Interests

Air-sea interaction, particularly slow oceanic adjustment and its influence on the atmosphere, is crucial for climate prediction on the time-scale of seasonal and longer. Performing coupled ocean-atmosphere circulation experiments on Earth Simulator, I have been working on extra-tropical air-sea interaction and demonstrated that extra-tropical ocean has a significant impact on climate as much as well-established tropical influence. I hope to further investigate inter-regional climate linkage among tropics, mid-to-high latitudes and Arctic region, deepen our understanding on the seasonal to decadal-scale climate variability, and thereby contribute to improve its prediction.
