Dr. Chu has 27-year experience in satellite remote sensing, radiative transfer modeling and statistical analysis on atmospheric measurements. He has been involved in UARS ISAMS and EOS MODIS satellite missions since 1988. He served as a PI in multiple NASA field campaigns between 2004 and 2010. His recent involvement in NASA DISCOVER-AQ airborne missions targets the relationship between columnar AOD and surface PM2.5 for air quality application over the US.
Dr. Chu’s research focus includes 1) radiative transfer modeling with line-by-line and band models on satellite sensor development, 2) retrieval methodology development of ozone and aerosols, 3) application of satellite data to air quality and public health, 4) atmospheric radiative forcing, and 5) aerosol-cloud interaction.
