Research Interests

I study the wave-mean flow interactions in midlatitudes, especially how finite-amplitude waves modify the mean flow through the process of wave breaking. I want to develop diagnostic tools that can characterize and evaluate the tendency of large-scale phenomena such as Rossby wave breaking and blocking in the upper troposphere. I am also interested how these phenomena affect mass transport in the atmosphere.
