Huan Meng photoHuan Meng received a Ph.D. in Hydrology from Colorado State University in 2004, and a M.S. in Physical Oceanography from Florida State University in 1993. Before joining NOAA in 2006, she worked as a NOAA contractor for seven years. Currently, she is a physical scientist at NESDIS/Center for Satellite Applications and Research and a visiting research scientist with the Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites at the University of Maryland in College Park, MD.

Dr. Meng's research area is satellite microwave remote sensing. Recent projects focus on the development and applications of satellite snowfall rate (SFR) products using measurements from ATMS aboard S-NPP, and AMSU/MHS sensor pair aboard NOAA POES and EUMETSAT Metop satellites. SFR algorithms will also be developed using measurements from DMSP SSMIS and NASA GMI. Her research interests also include the development of AMSU-A window channels Climate Data Record. She received the Dept. of Commerce Bronze Medal in 2008 and 2014 respectively for implementing the Metop processing system and for developing NOAA's first satellite-based operational snowfall rate product.
