Dr. Jia Yue

Research Associate Professor

Dr. Jia Yue received the BS from Shanghai Jiaotong University in 2002, the MS from University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2004, the PhD from Colorado State University in 2009, all in Electrical and Computer Engineering. After 3 years of Advanced Study Program post doctoral research associate at National Center for Atmospheric Research, High Altitude Observatory, in Boulder, he joined the research faculty at Hampton University in 2012. In the fall of 2011, he served as an adjunct professor at Hampton University to teach a graduate level course, being supported by the Diversity Fund from NCAR.

Dr. Yue's research has focused on the theoretical, numerical and experimental investigation of the dynamical, electrodynamical and energetical coupling processes between Earth's lower and upper atmosphere. He tries to answer the critical question: how the space environment is influenced by the meteorological perturbations. He specializes in fluid dynamics, thermodynamics and electrodynamics applied to the upper atmosphere. He also specializes in optical remote sensing techniques (lidars and airglow imagers) to design, develop, deploy and apply the instruments to upper atmosphere studies. He has worked with several global circulation models, such as TIME-GCM and WACCM, to characterize the impacts of gravity waves, planetary waves and tides in the upper atmosphere. He is also interested in satellite remote sensing and data analysis.

Dr. Yue has authored or co-authored more than 40 peer reviewed journal papers in the scientific literature. He has been invited to give presentations in a number of scientific meetings. He has served as a PI or Co-PI on a number of NSF and NASA grants. He is a frequent reviewer for scientific journals such as JGR, GRL, JASTP and panel reviewer for NASA. He received the SCOSTEP (Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics) Distinguished Young Scientist Award in 2014.

Teaching Experience: Atmospheric Remote Sensing, Optics and Electronics Lab
