Xinghao (XC) Chen's primary research interests involve tropical meteorology and data assimilation. In particular, how tropical convection and tropical cyclones interact with the large-scale flow and underlying ocean/land. He approaches these questions with high-resolution numerical models, remote sensing observations, and theoretical analysis tools. A significant component of his research effort is also aimed at developing novel data assimilation techniques to improve the analysis and prediction of tropical convection and tropical cyclones.
