B.S., (double major) Department of Geology, National Taiwan University

Research Interests

Hsiang-He's research interests include boundary layer meteorology, atmospheric aerosols and clouds, regional air quality, and the roles of aerosol-cloud interaction in atmospheric chemistry, precipitation, and climate dynamics. Hsiang-He has been involved to develop and utilize aerosol physics and chemistry model to couple with a global climate system model and a regional air quality model to study the impacts of anthropogenic pollutions on global and regional climate. The current research project is to work in the area of atmospheric general circulation model development with the goal of improving the representation of clouds by implementing a novel adaptive vertical grid enhancement technique.
