Seminar Title - "Gulf Stream Varibility and its impacts on regional circulation and marine biogeochemical processes"
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 vice-chair (chair) of Gordon Research Conference on Coastal Ocean Dynamics in 2015 (2017). He is presently also a member of UNOLS Ocean Observing Science Committee, a member of Integrated Ocean Observing System- National Modeling Steering Team, and a science team member of International GODAE OceanView project.
