He advocates for effectively communicating information about uncertainty in forecasts by delivering seminars, conducting training classes, and writing articles. Dr Du's research interests include ensemble forecasting and forecast uncertainty, predictability, anomaly weather analysis and forecasting, verification of deterministic and probabilistic forecasts, post-processing and downscaling of model forecasts, as well as forecast applications. He has published about 40 peer-reviewered journal articles on these topics. He served as a member to various working groups such as WRF ensemble forecasting working group, the AMS Ad Hoc Committee on Uncertainty in Forecasts, the WMO-THORPEX TIGGE-LAM working group, and the NOAA Hurricane Forecast Improvement Project ensemble team. He is an invited contributor to the United States National Research Council's milestone report Completing the Forecast: Characterizing and Communicating Uncertainty for Better Decisions Using Weather and Climate Forecasts. Dr Du also has served as an Associate Editor for the American Meteorological Society's journal Weather and Forecsting from 2009 to 2014 and was awarded a prestigous AMS Editor Award for this journal in 2012. He is a regular reviewer of research proposals and manuscripts for many top agencies and journals around the world. Dr Du has a BS degree (1982) from Hangzhou University (now a part of Zhejiang University), an MS degree (1988) from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, and a PhD degree (1996) from the University of Arizona.
