EDUCATION
Ming Xue obtained his B.Sc. in Meteorology from Nanjing
University (China) in 1984. He was awarded the British Council Technical
Cooperation Award to study at University of Reading, England for advanced
degrees. He obtained his Ph.D. in meteorology from Reading University
in 1989 under the supervision of Prof. Alan Thorpe.
EXPERIENCES
He joined Center for Analysis and Prediction of Storms
(CAPS), University of Oklahoma in 1989 as a postdoctoral fellow in
1989 and became a senior research scientist in 1993. Dr. Xue is the
principal architect of the Advanced Regional Prediction System (ARPS),
a comprehensive multiscale research and NWP model. He was the director
of the model development project of CAPS from 1994 to 2001 and was
responsible for the overall planning, design, testing, and module
integration of the model. The model won the Discover Magazine Award
for Technology Innovation (computer software category) in 1997 and
the Computerworld Smithsonian Award (science category) in the same
year. The model is being used by researchers and governmental agencies
of more than 25 countries for applications ranging from basic research
to operational numerical weather prediction. Over more recent years, he has developed with his graduate students the ensemble data assimilation system for the ARPS and has contributed to the development of the ARPS 3DVAR system. He is the Analysis and Prediction Thrust leader, Associate Director and the University of Oklahoma PI of the NSF Engineering Research Center (ERC) for Collaobrative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA). Dr. Xue is currently
a professor of School of Meteorology and
Director of CAPS.
He has over ten active research grants currently, with the majority from the National Science Foundation.
RESEARCH INTERESTS
Dr. Xue's main research interests involve the development
of advanced numerical modeling and data assimilation systems, numerical weather prediction, highperformance computing, simulation and prediction
of mesoscale and convective scale systems, mesoscale and stormscale
dynamics, tornado dynamics, data assimilation and predictability, and variational
and ensemble Kalman filter techniques for assimilating radar data.
PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
Dr. Xue supervises over 10 graduate students
and postdoctoral scientists. He is actively involved in the development
of the next generation Weather and Forecast Model of the US and serves on the WRF Research Applications Board.
He regularly serves as the reviewers of many scientific journals and of proposals of national funding agencies. He has
authored and coauthored close to 200 referred journal articles and even more conference papers. The courses he taught include graduatelevel
Computational Fluid Dynamics, Objective Analysis and Data Assimilation,
undergraduate level Physical Mechanics and Mesoscale Meteorology.
