Dr. Yuan is an experienced scientist, geophysicist by training. He has conducted several ground breaking analysis on interactions between aerosols and clouds. His interests and experience include Remote Sensing , cloud physics, aerosol and cloud feedbacks, aerosol-cloud-climate interactions. Dr. Yuan has given undergraduate and graduate lectures in remote sensing and statistics. He has mentored students.
Dr. Yuan's research interest includes the role of aerosols and clouds in the climate system and their feedback to climate change. He uses the vast amount of satellite data together with other sources of observations to tackle a range of issues. He also employs models with a hierarchy of complexity to model observational results. Dr. Yuan also has interest in developing novel theories to understand cloud statistics.
