Dr. Wei Wu is an Atmospheric Scientist at the Biological, Environmental & Climate Sciences Department in Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). Her current scientific work aims to understanding land-atmosphere interactions, climate change and their interactions with environments and human activities; quantification and improvement of climate modeling deficiencies and uncertainties. Her research is focused on using observations and models to advance predictive understanding of energy-environment-climate interactions. She established the research direction on studying land-atmosphere interactions at BNL through support from the BNL’s Laboratory Directed Research and Development program.
