Steven Chan is an American trained meteorologist with background in computer science and upper atmosphere physics. Originally from Hong Kong, he has lived in the US for over a decade, and moves to United Kingdom in 2011.
Apart from science, he has interests in history, political science, and Japanese culture/language.
Chan is based in the Met Office Hadley Centre.
Extreme events, climate dynamics, tropical meteorology, hydrological cycle, dynamical regional climate and mesoscale models
Current role in Newcastle:
Steven Chan is part of the CONVEX project - a joint project between Newcastle University, Met Office, University of Exeter. He works on intercomparing and understanding high resolution Met Office Unified Model simulations of UK precipitation extremes.
