Research Interests

Dr. Shie has involved and played crucial roles in several projects of diverse interests. He has studied air-sea interaction, as well as developed a series of successively improved global air-sea surface turbulent fluxes datasets (i.e., from GSSTF2b, GSSTF2c to GSSTF3), derived from improved remote sensing data and updated reanalysis data, by using updated algorithms [NASA funded project of MEaSUREs]. Dr. Shie has also investigated the potential influence of SAL dust on intensity of tropical cyclone and hurricane/typhoon using multi-sensors data and modeled simulations (applying the WRF model) [NASA funded projects of EOS; NAMMA; TCSP]. He has also applied the cloud-resolving model (GCE): studying the radiative-convective system (clouds) and its interaction with large-scale environment; producing numerical vertical heating profiles and improving the satellite latent heating profile retrieval [NASA funded projects of NEWS; TRMM]. Dr. Shie, as the project scientist of GES DISC (the data center at Goddard) since January 2013, has recently extended his interests into the “Data Science” field focusing on better understanding characteristics of the massive and heterogeneous Earth Science data, as well as aiming to further (how to) improve the science data distributions and user services. Dr. Shie has also actively studied the overall metrics of user’s data and services usages at GES DISC, which also include special information obtained from the users’ “Tickets”, i.e., basically users’ emails or online feedback mainly asking for helps or questions on the data or/and services they have requested. Information about the user’s specific scientific research subjects and applications associated with the data they have requested and used has also been voluntarily provided inside those users’ tickets sometimes. Dr. Shie has named such an approach as “Information Mining”, as well as genuinely treasured and believed it should help and lead to a comprehensive understanding of the essential and inseparable relations between “Data & Science”.
