  • Visiting Scientist
  • NASA/GSFC
  • Employer: UNIVERSITIES SPACE RESEARCH ASSOCIATION
  • Brief Bio

    Eun Hee Lee is a senior scientist of the Korean Meteorological Administration.

    She've been working as a visiting scientist at NASA with the support of the Korean government fellowship for overseas study.

    She joined the KMA after graduating school, she worked as a research scientist at a Numerical Modeling Center/KMA, where she worked on developing quality control system of observation and satellite data assimilation technique especially for COMS CSR and AMV until 2013.

    In 2013-2015 she worked at NMSC(National Meteorological Satellite Center)/KMA, where she worked on developing of cloud-mask algorithm for Geo-Kompsat 2A and improving pre-processing of ground-based GNSS data.

    In 2015, she returned to the Numerical Modeling Center, where she worked on GNSS satellite data assimilation development and became manager of the satellite data assimilation team in 2018.

    Since 2018, she led the activity to assimilate satellite data in convective scale model based on Unified Model system and the introduction of new Korean glob al NWP system(GDPAS-KIM) developed by the project for 10 years as an operational glob al model of KMA. She has been dedicating to improve the satellite data assimilation system of new Korean global NWP system.
