Yutian Wu

Lamont Assistant Research Professor, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory

Dr. Yutian Wu researches the general circulation of the atmosphere, including the midlatitude jet streams, storm tracks and monsoon circulation, using observations and numerical model simulations. Dr. Wu’s recent research projects focus on understanding the impact of Arctic sea ice loss on the mid-latitude weather and climate as well as understanding the summer monsoon circulation and its associated troposphere-stratosphere transport. She is the recipient of the 2017 National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award.

Before joining Lamont, Dr. Wu worked as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at Purdue University and before that, a postdoctoral research associate at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.
