Likun 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.
