Dr. Wang's research interests include aerosol physics and chemistry, cloud dynamics, microphysics, and chemistry, interaction between cloud-scale and large-scale processes, aerosol-cloud-climate interactions, and atmospheric chemistry. He and his group have developed a three-dimensional cloud-resolving model to simulate the dynamical, microphysical, and chemical processes of clouds, especially of deep convective clouds. They have also developed a three-dimensional global aerosol-climate model to study the roles of atmospheric aerosols as well as aerosol-cloud interaction in climate processes. He is also working on a global interactive chemistry and climate model and using this model to study the sensitivity of climate change to atmospheric chemical processes.
