Joseph Ko

Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Columbia University

Joe Ko is a postdoctoral research scientist at the NSF Learning the Earth with AI and Physics (LEAP) Center at Columbia University. His current research involves using machine learning to constrain ice microphysical parameterizations using in-situ observations and cloud-scale LES simulations. He received his PhD in Environmental Engineering with an MS in Computer Science from the University of Southern California, and a BS/MS in Environmental Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. In addition to cloud microphysics, he is also interested in interdisciplinary research topics such as urban climate, local to regional climate adaptation and mitigation, and air quality.
