My name is Weiming Hu. I'm a Ph.D. student in the Department of Geography. I earned a B.E. from Wuhan University majoring in Geoinformatics and an M.S. from Penn State majoring in Geography. My research interest lies in the fields of high-performance computing, computational algorithms, and spatial analysis. During my M.S., I have been closely involved with numerical weather prediction, and I have been actively developing and maintaining the Parallel Ensemble Forecast package. Here in our lab, we have several researchers and students investigating different aspects of this methodology which shows promising outcomes. For my Ph.D., I plan to find my own niche between Climate Science and the energy field and explore how we could use HPC to address global energy problems.
