Research Interests

Dr. Huang is interested in weather & climate extremes, such as extreme precipitation, tropical cyclones, and atmospheric rivers. He uses weather observations and climate models to understand the effects of climate variability and anthropogenic climate change on extreme events, and the physical processes through which they are linked. He is also interested in assessing climate change impacts on agriculture and natural resources.  Please refer to his group website for more details.
