Bio

Dr. He is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences at North Carolina State University. His research expertise spans from coastal circulation dynamics, air-sea interaction, to biophysical interactions. As the director of the Ocean Observing and Modeling Group, he conducts coastal ocean observations, remote sensing data analyses, and also leads the development of prediction models of ocean circulation, air-sea-wave interactions, physical-biogeochemical couplings, as well as data assimilation.  Dr. He served as an Associated Editor for Journal of Geophysical Research-Oceans, and as a guest editor for Ocean Dynamics. He also serves on the editorial boards of several other scientific journals and on the organizing committees of several major international science meetings. He is the co-chair of Gordon Research Conference on Coastal Ocean Dynamics in 2017. He is presently also a member of NSF Ocean Observatories Initiative Facility Board, a committee member of National Academy of Sciences-Gulf Research Program, a member of Integrated Ocean Observing System- National Modeling Steering Team, and a science team member of International GODAE OceanView project.

Research Description

Research interests in my research team include: 1) Coastal ocean circulation dynamics; 2)Marine physical-biogeochemical interactions; 3) Air-sea interactions; 3) Satellite oceanography; 4) Numerical modeling and data assimilation; 5) Coastal ocean observing systems. Our approach is to use in situ and remote sensing observations, numerical models, and data analysis and assimilation methods to examine fundamental ocean circulation physics, and to gain an integrated understanding of their interactions with the atmosphere and with ocean biological, geological, and chemical processes.
