J. Christine Chiu

Christine Chiu is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Meteorology, University of Reading, United Kingdom. Prior to joining Reading, she was an associated scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Christine's research interests lie in remote sensing, radiative transfer, and cloud-aerosol-precipitation-radiation interactions. She has worked extensively on retrievals of cloud and precipitation properties using the synergy between passive radiometers and active radar/lidar. She has used these novel observations to investigate 3D cloud distributions and their radiative impact, to quantify aerosol impacts on precipitation, and to provide constraints for precipitation formation processes. Christine has been active in the ARM/ASR community since 2003, working closely with instrument mentors and science team members for data products and observational strategies. She is currently severing as a member of the ARM science board and the User Executive Committee, a member of the International Radiation Commission, and the chair of the AMS Atmospheric Radiation Committee.
