Shuyi Chen is a professor of meteorology in the University of Washington’s School of Atmospheric Sciences. Her research interests involve observation of how the atmosphere and ocean interact with hurricanes and typhoons in tropical areas and use of mathematical models to predict weather patterns. During the 2005 hurricane season Chen monitored hurricanes Rita, Katrina and Wilma aboard Doppler-equipped aircraft to help create stronger hurricane prediction models.

Prior to joining the University of Washington, Chen was a professor of meteorology and physical oceanography in the University of Miami’s Rosentiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. While there, she led a research group that developed a new wave-ocean model designed to research and predict hurricane patterns. Chen served on a panel of experts for the congressional briefing on the National Hurricane Initiative in 2007. In 2006, she received NASA’s Group Award on Tropical Convection.
