Weijia Kuang
Research
* Origins of Earth and planetary magnetic fields (geodynamo and planetary dynamo theories): numerical simulation of dynamical processes in the Earth's and planetary cores, and planetary magnetic evolution;
* Geomagnetic data assimilation: combining surface observations and dynamical models to predict geomagnetic secular variation, and to estimate the core state;
* Geomagnetic/geodynamo applications: time-varying geodetic observables (gravity field, Earth's angular momentum) arising from solid Earth and liquid core interactions;
* General computational fluid dynamics and nonlinear differential equations: numerical algorithm development, parallel and grid computation, ensemble analysis.
