Ms I-Han CHEN

In the Core Modelling Development Branch at CCRS, Ms I-Han Chen’s current research focus is on developing and evaluating a high-resolution regional data assimilation and modelling system for the Singapore and Southeast Asia seas. This research involves utilising MPAS-JEDI as a central component. Before joining CCRS, Ms Chen was involved in the development of high-resolution regional modelling systems at the Central Weather Administration in Taiwan. During her time there, Ms Chen’s research centered around data assimilation and ensemble forecasting, with a particular emphasis on improving short-range weather prediction.

Ms Chen recently completed her doctoral thesis defense at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, where she investigated regime-dependent predictability and forecast error growth in kilometre-scale models. During her doctoral research, Ms Chen had the opportunity to enhance her expertise by collaborating with scientists at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, USA for two years.
