Dr. Zhuo Wang's research interests are primarily in the fields of tropical meteorology and climate dynamics, including tropical cyclones, intraseasonal variability, tropical-extratropical interaction, subseasonal to decadal prediction and predictability, and extreme events. Her research objective is to better understand the fundamental dynamics and physics governing atmospheric motions and to improve the prediction skills.
