Seo, Hyodae

Associate Professor
Physical Oceanography

Dr. Hyodae Seo is an Associate Professor in the Uehiro Center for the Advancement of Oceanography within the Department of Oceanography. He is a physical oceanographer and climate scientist with a broad range of research and teaching interests in ocean and atmospheric processes and their coupled interactions relating to weather and climate. He combines high-resolution coupled modeling with theories of geophysical fluid dynamics and analyses of in situ and satellite observations to better understand the ocean-atmosphere coupled boundary layer processes, improve their representation in numerical models, and evaluate their influence on ocean, weather, and climate. Dr. Seo actively contributes to developing sustaining and sustainable ocean observing strategies and strives to engage the public around the issues related to ocean, extreme weather, climate, and ocean-based renewable energy research.

Dr. Seo earned a B.S. in Atmospheric Sciences from Yonsei University, Seoul, in 2002 and a Ph.D. in Oceanography from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego in 2007. He has received the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award in 2015 and the NOAA Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2008-2009.
