Prof. Zhang specializes in coupled Earth system modeling, Earth system predictability, coupled model data assimilation and parameter estimation, as well as the ultra fine-resolution global-regional coupled model and initialization for seamless weather-climate predictability studies and predictions. Currently one of his major missions is leading a national-wide large group to develop an ultra-high resolution Earth system model on Chinese home-grown heterogeneous high-performance-computing systems toward making seamless weather-climate predictions and coupled Earth system reanalysis. Predicting tropical cyclone (TC) genesis is of great societal importance but scientifically challenging. Prof. Zhang leads the team to build a high-resolution Asia-Pacific regional coupled prediction system with dynamically downscaling coupled data assimilation. This regional coupled prediction system has been used extensively in our research programs, including the studies of predictability of TC genesis, and improvement of TC track and intensity forecasts.

Dr. Anna Palumbo is currently Research Director at the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn. She spent some periods abroad, at INSERM and INSA in France and, as visiting scientist, at NIH, Bethesda and at MRC, Edinburgh. Dr. Anna Palumbo has authored and co-authored several international publications and also working as a reviewer for reputed professional journals. Her research interests are mainly focused on marine organisms. In particular, she investigated the biosynthesis, signalling and roles of nitric oxide in relation to cuttlefish defence system and ascidian development. More recently, research interests have been focused to understand how marine organisms are responding and may adapt to the increasing pressure exerted by climatic changes and human activities. The actions of some environmental conditions (acidification, toxic bloom, polluting agents) have been examined on marine organisms at different life phases by laboratory or field experiments. Moreover, great attention has been also focused on the biological properties of marine bioactive molecules with the aim to develop pharmacological applications.
