Yen-Heng (Henry) Lin


Climate Science Ph.D.

About me:

I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at Alex Hall's group in the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability at UCLA since February 2019. My research topics are focused on Generating downscaled projections of climate, analyzing model output.

I obtain my Ph.D. degree from Department of Plants, Soils, and Climate at Utah State University in July 2018. The title of my dissertation is: "Influence of Global Atmospheric Circulation Variations on Weather and Climate Extremes," advised by Dr. Simon Wang.

Research interests:

Dynamic Diagnostic, Arctic Circulation, Weather/Climate Extremes, Tropical-Arctic Interaction, Regional Climate variation

Current Project:

  • Generating downscaled projections of climate, analyzing model output
  • California wildfire analysis
  • The impacts and variations of Atmospheric rivers
