Ph.D. Student

School of Meteorology, University of Oklahoma

Yuqi Huang is currently a Ph.D. student in the School of Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma (OU), advised by Prof. Chenghao Wang. Before coming to OU, Yuqi completed his master’s degree in civil engineering at Beijing Normal University, China. His previous research focused on understanding and modeling the physical, hydrological, and ecological processes of inland water bodies and the response of aquatic ecosystems to climate change.

Yuqi has an interest in interdisciplinary subjects across hydrology, meteorology, and statistics. His Ph.D. research topic is urban climate and hydrometeorology in which he seeks to understand and improve the predictive capability of urban hydrometeorological and climate simulations across multiple spatial scales. Quantitative statistics and modeling provide the methodological core for his work, which involves tools such as remote sensing, numerical modeling, spatial statistics, and hierarchical modeling.
