Introduction

Abstract

Kentaroh (Kenta) Suzuki is an Associate Professor at Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute (AORI), University of Tokyo. His research focuses on cloud microphysics, aerosol-cloud interactions and their effects on Earth’s climate with combined use of satellite observations and numerical modeling. His doctoral work at the University of Tokyo was devoted to climate modeling and detailed cloud microphysics modeling of aerosol-cloud interactions. After graduation in 2004, he participated in development of the first-ever aerosol-coupled global cloud-resolving model, NICAM-SPRINTARS, on Earth Simulator. As a postdoctoral researcher at Colorado State University, he began using satellite observations to study cloud microphysics. In 2011, He joined NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) where he conducted researches of exploiting multi-sensor satellite observations to evaluate numerical climate/cloud models. He also participated in development of a Large Eddy Simulation (LES) model at JPL by implementing his cloud microphysics computation module into JPL-LES. Since joining AORI/U. Tokyo, he has been studying climatic effects of aerosols and clouds with various methods including climate modeling, global high-resolution modeling, process-scale modeling, satellite observation analysis and their synergistic combinations.
