Hi, my name is Qiu Yang. I am currently an earth scientist at PNNL (see my PNNL webpage). Before this, I was a postdoctoral fellow working on the scale interactions of organized tropical convection, co-mentored by Profs. Andrew Majda (NYU), Boualem Khouider (Uvic), and Mitchell Moncrieff (NCAR). In 2017 spring, I obtained my Ph.D. degree of Mathematics and Atmosphere Ocean Science at Center for Atmosphere Ocean Science, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University.

My current research focuses on two topics, including 1) developing theoretical models for the initiation of summer-time mesoscale convective systems over the central United States, and 2) developing a parameterization for convective momentum transport in the superparameterized Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM).
