I am currently an NSF postdoctoral research fellow at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (Columbia University). I will be starting as an Assistant Professor at Cornell University’s Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Department in Fall 2024. Previously, I graduated with my Ph.D. in atmospheric science from the Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at MIT, under the supervision of Prof. Kerry Emanuel. I attended Princeton University for my undergraduate degree, where I majored in computer science and obtained a certificate in Geological Engineering.

If you are interested in working with me, please send me an email at jonathanlin@cornell.edu. I am currently recruiting a student to start in Fall 2024 (co-advised with Prof. Peter Hitchcock). See here for more details.

My research interests are broadly in tropical meteorology, including (but not limited to) tropical cyclone prediction/predictability, dynamics of tropical intraseasonal variability, and troposphere-stratosphere coupling.

For real-time, large-ensemble tropical cyclone forecasts, see tcs.mit.edu. For the public repository of the tropical cyclone downscaling model, see here.
