Huanping Huang is a guest faculty in the Climate and Ecosystem Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. His past research focused on the detection and attribution of hydroclimate extremes, the impacts of climate change on agriculture, and climate change adaptations. Here at Berkeley Lab, he applies state-of-the-art global climate models and high-resolution dynamical downscaling to understand the effects of natural variability and anthropogenic forcing on climate extremes (e.g. extreme precipitation, drought, and tropical cyclones), and the physical processes through which they are linked.
He received a BS in Geographical Information System from China Agricultural University, a MS in Meteorology from Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, and a PhD in Earth Sciences from Dartmouth College. Outside of academia, Huanping enjoys reading, hiking, table tennis, and watching sports games, and has passion for community service and science outreach as well.
