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 post-doctoral 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 multi-scale 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 systems, high-performance computing, simulation and prediction of mesoscale and convective scale systems, mesoscale and storm-scale dynamics, tornado dynamics, data assimilation and predictibility, and variational and ensemble Kalman filter techniques for assimilationg radar data.

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

Dr. Xue supervises over 10 graduate students and post-doctoral 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 co-authored more than 60 referred articles and more than 100 conference publications. The courses he taught include graduate-level Computational Fluid Dynamics, Objective Analysis and Data Assimilation, undergraduate level Physical Mechanics and Mesoscale Meteorology.
