Chiao Research Group

I am the advisor for the Chiao Research Group and the Institute of Atmospheric Research in the Department of Meteorology and Climate Science at San Jose State University. My main research focus is on mesoscale observations and modeling in the tropics. My goal is to advance our understanding of fundamental science in the areas of weather and climate, hydrometeorology, and their linkages to global warming. My research activities are conducted using many different methods striving to achieve high standards of rigor, depth and completeness.

Courses I have taught at Florida Tech and San Jose State include Remote Sensing for Meteorology, Atmospheric Remote Sensing, Marine Meteorology, Numerical Weather Prediction, Mesoscale Meteorology, Intro. to Environmental Flow Modeling, and Planetary Boundary Layer Meteorology, Weather Analysis and Forecasting, Weather Briefing, and Dynamics Meteorology. 

I am continuously looking for energetic, creative people at all levels (undergraduate, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and visiting scientists) to join my research group. I am always happy to discuss potential research projects. If you are interested in my research work, please contact me.
