Dr. Dien Wu to Join ATS as an Assistant Professor

It is a pleasure to announce Dr. Dien Wu will be joining our department as an Assistant Professor in January 2025. Dr. Wu ( will be coming here as a culmination of our recent surface-atmosphere interaction faculty search.

Currently a scientist in the Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences at Cal Tech, Dr. Wu received her Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Utah in 2020. She seeks to quantify human impacts on carbon, water, and energy fluxes over climate-sensitive regions using unique remote sensing and modeling techniques. Dr. Wu’s areas of interest include the urban carbon cycle, assessing the impact of irrigation on carbon and water fluxes, examining the impact of prescribed burns on emissions and local ecosystems, and exploring the complexities of interactions at urban-wildland and urban-agriculture interfaces, among other topics. She also has many exciting teaching plans related to such topics.

Dien, welcome to our department. We are excited for your arrival!
