Brief Bio

B.S. in Atmospheric Sciences from the National Taiwan University (Taipei, Taiwan) in 1977, and M.S. and Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Alaska in 1982 and 1986, respectively. Joined Goddard Space Flight Center as a Physical Scientist in the Climate and Radiation Laboratory since 1994. Visiting Scientist in the Universities Space Research Association, Goddard Space Flight Center, between 1990 and 1994, and Research Scientist in the Department of Atmospheric Science, Colorado State University (Fort Collins, Colorado) from 1986 to 1990. Appointed Adjunct Associate Professor at the Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska, 1992-1998, and Adjunct Professor at the Earth Systems Science Interdisciplinary Center, University of Maryland, 2002-2012. Awarded NASA Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal in 2002 and NASA Outstanding Leadership Medal in 2008, among numerous achievement awards. Served as member in various Science Teams for many federal research agencies, and the NASA EOS/Terra deputy project scientist since 2000. For more details please download his CV here.

Authored/coauthored over 27 papers published in refereed scientific journals, in addition to many scientific/technical reports and book chapters. One paper/code (DisORT), the 1988 “theoretical radiative transfer algorithm in multiple scattering and emitting layered media”, was featured as the most cited article (1,444 as of 6 January 2012) in the 50th anniversary celebration of Applied Optics. DisORT is freely distributed through NASA and widely used by the scientific communities. More details of publications and citation metrics can be found here.

Besides theoretical developments in radiative transfer, research experience includes science planning and operating remote-sensing sensors and in-situ probes from suborbital and ground-based platforms in field experiments to study aerosol, cloud and surface properties, and to aid in the development of atmospheric and land remote sensing and retrieval algorithms under NASA’s Earth System Science projects. Building and deploying a suite of surface remote-sensing and in-situ instrumentation (SMART, COMMIT, and ACHIEVE mobile laboratories, to compare and validate satellite measurements.
