  • Brief Bio

    Dr. Matsui studies cloud-precipitation processes associated with aerosols, land-surface, and large-scale environment through mesoscale meteorological models, remote sensing, and instrumental simulators. He is the key developer of the Unified Goddard Cumulus Ensemble (GCE) model, the NASA-Unified Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model, and the Goddard Satellite Data Simulator Unit (G-SDSU). He developed GPM satellite simulator to support pre-launch algorithm development for the GPM algorithm developer teams, and recently he also developed polarimetric radar simulator to fully utilizes ground-based scanning Dopper polarimetric radars. Dr. Matsui recently focus on creating NASA’s super sites over NASA Wallops Flight Facility for studying cloud-convection and precipitation processes. He organizes a seminar series of NASA Cloud-Precipitation Center (CPC), and GCE/NU-WRF development teams. He published 60+ journal publications and book chapters.
