Likun Wang (ResearcherID: B-7524-2008; ORCID: 0000-0001-5646-9746; Google Scholar) received the B.S. degree in atmospheric sciences and the M.S. degree in meteorology from Peking University, Beijing, China, in 1996 and 1999, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in atmospheric sciences from University of Alaska Fairbanks, in 2004. He currently is an associate research scientist with ESSIC/CICS in support of satellite sensor calibration and validation program for NOAA/NESDIS/STAR. Before that, he worked on lidar/radar remote sensing of clouds as a postdoctoral research associate with University of Maryland from 2004 to 2005. With more than 12 years of progressive working experiences of NOAA’s satellite sensors (e.g., hyperspectral infrared sounder – Cross-track Infrared Sounder and other infrared sounders – HIRS and SSU) and as research and project management roles, he is responsible for the pre- and post-launch calibration testing data analysis, inter-calibration for post-launch instrument monitoring and assessment, ground processing software development, configuration and calibration parameter refining, and new algorithm design and integration. He independently initiates and plans research projects and then completes them in a timely manner through program coordination, cultivation of strong industry relationships, and international collaborations. He currently serves as a lead for geometric calibration in the CrIS SDR Team and the chair of World Meteorological Organization (WMO) sponsored Global Space-based Inter-Calibration System (GSICS) infrared sensor working group.
