Kuniaki Inoue

Associate Research Scientist

Dr. Inoue is an Associate Research Scientist at Center for Climate Systems Research (CCSR) at the Columbia Climate School of Columbia University. His research focuses on the weather and climate features associated with tropical moist convection over a wide range of spectra from an individual-convective scale to planetary and global scales. His research uses theories, observational data including satellite observations, and general circulation models for understanding the interactions between large-scale environment and moist convection.


Prior to joining CCSR in 2022, Dr. Inoue worked at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) as a NASA Postdoctoral Program Fellow, and at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University as an adjunct postdoctoral researcher from 2018 to 2022. He also worked at the NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) as a postdoctoral researcher from 2016 to 2018. He completed his Ph.D. in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2016.
