Dr. Zhong

Hello and welcome! I am a professor in the Department of Geography, Environment and Spatial Sciences at Michigan State University. The research of my group focuses primarily on atmospheric boundary layer and mesoscale processes with an emphasis on those induced by topography and landscape heterogeneity, the transport and dispersion of air pollutants especially smoke from prescribed and wildland fires, and regional climate and climate change with a particular emphasis on the Great Lakes region. Our approach combines multi-scale numerical modeling with observational data to better understand the dynamics of small- to regional-scale atmospheric processes and their complex interactions with the environment. If you have any questions or if you are interested in learning more about our work, do not hesitate to contact me.
