Shih-Wei Fang
I am a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology. I am interested in paleo-climate, ENSO dynamics, and climate statistics. 

Current projects:
1) Understanding the natural external forcing contributions to the early 19th-century cooling. (Simulating 19th-century climates by MPI-ESM with combinations of volcanic and solar forcing)
2) Disentangling the internal and external components of Atlantic Multi-decadal Variability. (Estimating the internal component of AMV with statistical method for Past2k simulations of PMIP4)
3) Investagatiing ENSO transition complexity. (Quantifying the ENSO transition complexity of CMIP6 model simulations and reanalysis)

Besides, I am also interested in topics related to statistical methods (FDR), machine learning, and large-scale circulation.
