Xiyue Zhang

Postdoc, Caltech

I recently finished my PhD thesis on Dynamics of Polar Clouds at Caltech. I have a broad interest in climate dynamics and polar climate, especially the interaction between large-scale circulation and small-scale turbulence.

Currently I am working with Tapio Schneider, on understanding what controls the dynamics of polar low clouds, using high resolution large-eddy simulations. I will start my ASP fellowship at NCAR in November, 2018.

You can find out more about my research here.
