Welcome to Jidong's Home Page



I am currently a research meteorologist for National Severe Storm Laboratory (NSSL)/National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). I am also affiliated with University of Oklahoma (OU) as Research Fellow for the Cooperative Institute for Severe and High-Impact Weather Research and Operations (CIWRO), and as adjunct faculty member for the School of Meteorology (SoM). Before joining NSSL in 2010, I was an employee for OU Center for Analysis and Prediction of Storms (CAPS) for 13 years. I was the primary developer of a hybrid ensemble-variational radar data assimilation system (Gao et al, 1999, 2004, 2013, 2016; Gao and Stensrud, 2012, 2014) which has interface with both open-source community Advanced Regional Prediction System (ARPS), and Weather Research & Forecasting model (WRF).


Unlike many other meteorologists here who love to chase storms or even tornadoes, I would rather stay indoors and play with complex formulae and computers. I consider myself as a part-time scientist who conducts scientific research and part-time software engineer who develops data assimilation programs for numerical weather prediction models.
