UT Expert: Joshua S. Fu
Joshua Fu’s research work includes climatic changes, environmental impact assessments, air pollution modeling and energy usages on air quality, land use (satellite applications) and emissions. He also focuses on the impacts of extreme events on health, the impacts of transportation planning, diesel track emission effects and energy optimization planning.
He served as an international adviser/expert on East Asia/China air quality modeling assessment, such as Beijing and Shanghai air quality modeling assessment for the 2008 Olympic Games and 2010 Shanghai World Expo. He develops and provides scientifically sound, cost-effective analysis tools to design and develop complex climate and environmental model applications. His recent work includes coupling global climate and chemistry models with regional climate and chemistry models to assess climate impacts at regional/local scales simulated in peta-scale supercomputers including Jaguar and Kraken, the two of the10 fastest supercomputers in the world.
