Yu Heng Tseng
Yu Heng Tseng was born in Taipei, Taiwan, in 1973. He received his Ph.D. degree in environmental fluid mechanics and hydrology from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Stanford University in 2003. After his Ph.D. degree, he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University on the large-eddy simulation of atmospheric boundary layer. Tseng spent two years at the Computational Research Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Since 2006, he joined the faculty of the Department of Atmospheric Sciences, National Taiwan University, Taiwan. He is presently an associate professor. Dr. Tseng’s primary expertise is multidisciplinary applications using high-performance computational tools. He conducts research on the computational modeling in geophysical fluid dynamics and its applications on ocean and atmosphere. His recent research involves high-performance coastal/global ocean modeling, earth system mode development, large-eddy simulation for environmental flows, and advanced numerical techniques, among others. He was the recipient of 2005 Outstanding Overseas Young Scientist, Foundation for the Advancement of Outstanding Scholarship, Taiwan. He also got the 2010 Best Paper Award of Dr. Shar-Qian Huang from the Meteorological Society of the Republic of China (MSROC).
