Research led by Christine Chiu featured as Science Highlight by DOE Office of Science

Research by Associate Professor Christine Chiu, Ph.D. student Kevin Yang, Professor Peter Jan van Leeuwen and several of their collaborators has been selected as a Science Highlight by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science. Only about 200 publications are highlighted each year.

The highlight, “How Does Drizzle Form? Machine Learning Improves Models of These Processes,” describes how machine learning offers new insights and parameterization for the path from drizzle drops to warm rain. It is based on the paper, “Observational Constraints on Warm Cloud Microphysical Processes Using Machine Learning and Optimization Techniques,” led by Chiu.
