I am the Director of the Center for Applied Atmospheric Research and Education (CAARE) in the Department of Meteorology and Climate Science at San Jose State University. CAARE is a NASA funded center established in 2015. The main research thrusts include: Urban heat island (UHI) and Climate Variability; Aerosol and its Impacts on Air Quality, Weather and Regional Climate; Wildfire Impacts on Air Quality; and Public Health linkages to Air Quality, Weather and Climate. Undergrad and grad students will be involved in research activities. Summer short courses, internships and symposium will be conducted. If you are interested in the center activities, please contact me directly.
