Education
  • Ph.D. in Marine Environment & Engineering, National Sun Yat-sen University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, 2011.
  • MS in Marine Environment & Engineering bypassed to PhD program, National Sun Yat-sen University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, 2001.

Research Interests

I have participated in several major operational forecast system projects in Taiwan including TaiCOMS (Taiwan Coastal Ocean Modeling and prediction System), ROCFORS (Regional Ocean Current Forecast Operational System), and NMOO (Navy Meteorological & Oceanographic Office) forecast system, by using different structured & unstructured grid models. I'm currently involved in a project related to coupling data assimilation module (PDAF) into SCHISM under ESMF.
