Siwon completed Ph.D. in Meteorology and physical Oceanography at University of Miami and started working with Dr. Steven Sherwood at CCRC, UNSW in 2018.
Siwon is interested in convection-environment interaction in the large-scale framework, especially the process of organizing clouds to form mesoscale convective systems (MCSs). Because of complex feedback between convection and large-scale dynamics, she approaches it with linearity. Based on the concept of linear response function by Kuang (2010) and comparison with convective scheme in a single column model, she plans to examine causality between convective tendencies and interesting environmental conditions, i.e., density current, microstate memories, etc. She is also interested in analyzing high-resolution global data to examine the realistic relationship between convective tendencies and the large-scale variables.
