Dr. Wang's research interests focus broadly on the area of regional climate modeling, mesoscale dynamics of precipitating systems, and cloud dynamics. Specifically, he has used the tools of remote sensing and the Weather Forecast and Research model to examine regional impacts of climate change on precipitation patterns, boundary-layer convection and precipitation in the Arctic region, and entrainment processes in cumulus clouds. Dr. Wang received his Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Wyoming in 2012. Prior to joining TTU, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Atmospheric Science at the University of Wyoming.
