Chih-Chi Hu awarded Best Student Presentation at AMS conference
Chih-Chi Hu, advised by Professor Peter Jan van Leeuwen, won a Best Student Presentation award at the 24th AMS Conference on Integrated Observing and Assimilation Systems for the Atmosphere, Oceans, and Land Surface (IOAS-AOLS) in January.
Hu’s presentation, “A Particle Flow Data Assimilation Method for High-Dimensional Systems,” examined how a nonlinear data assimilation method, the mapping particle filter, can improve the forecast in a high-dimensional system with nonlinear observation operators.
“I feel really honored to receive this award,” Hu said. “I am very grateful to Peter Jan for giving me so much support in my research and opportunities to present my work at a conference during my first year.”
