PhD Mathematical Sciences 2013 (Monash University) - Cloud and precipitation systems over the Southern Ocean


Yi Huang is a Lecturer in Climate Science at the School of Earth Sciences, the University of Melbourne. She received her PhD in Mathematical Sciences General at Monash University in 2013 studying cloud and precipitation systems over the Southern Ocean. Yi's main research interests are Southern Hemisphere meteorology and cloud & precipitation physics. Her projects involve the employment of in-situ / aircraft measurements, remote-sensing (space-borne and ground-based) observations, historical observations, reanalysis data sets, and state-of-the-art numerical simulations to understand clouds and precipitation generated by the Southern Hemisphere extratropical weather systems, how they link to Australian rainfall (including extremes), and how they differ from the Northern Hemisphere counterparts (e.g. North Atlantic and North Pacific Oceans). In addition, Yi has developed interests/expertise on Boundary Layer Meteorology, Air-sea Interaction, and Mountain Meteorology (e.g. orographic precipitation across southeastern Australia). She has conducted applied research in collaborations with several domestic industry partners including Snowy Hydro and Hydro Tasmania. To find out more about Yi, please visit her website:
