photo of Likun WangLikun Wang received the B.S. degree in atmospheric sciences and the M.S. degree in meteorology from Peking University, Beijing, China, in 1996 and 1999, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in atmospheric sciences from University of Alaska Fairbanks, in 2004. He currently is a research scientist with Dell Services Federal Government in support of satellite sensor calibration and validation program for NOAA/NESDIS. Before that, he worked on lidar/radar remote sensing of clouds as a postdoctoral research associate with University of Maryland from 2004 to 2005. His current principal areas of interest include: 1) improving accuracy and preciseness of satellite measurements and products through calibration and validation efforts; and 2) recalibrating NOAA's historic satellite data records to create consistent, homogeneous long-term satellite measurements for climate studies.
