Several dozen colleagues and friends of COAA enjoyed immensely the lecture by Professor Zou, who shared her personal stories, dreams, experiences, research and academic achievements.
Zou and Liang COAA's honorary member awards from Dr. Weng.
Prof. Xiaolei Zou is a Named Professor, J. Charney, of Florida State University, an AMS Fellow, and recipient of several prestigious awards from both China and the US. She is not only well known for her outstanding academic achievements in the fields of data assimilation and numerical weather prediction, but also much admired by her friends and colleagues for raising two exceptional children. As one of the earliest scholars who came to the USA after China's open policy began, Prof. Zou encountered and overcomed many personal and professional difficulties. What was the secret to her success?
At COAA's first distinguished scholar symposium, Prof. Zou passionately shared stories of her family, childhood, college, advisors, friends, students and children. She showed many pictures marking her growth from a little girl born into a typical Chinese intellectual family to an accomplished scholar of international fame. Her extraordinary characters, wisdom and persistence, were made evident as she was speaking. Prof. Zou told stories about her grandfather, who taught her what was benevolence, and stories about her parents and siblings from whom she inherited high intelligence, good character and strong discipline. She shared fond memories of attending the Nanjing Institute of Meteorology, and of the classmates, professors and MS and PhD advisors who influenced her life and shaped her earlier career. She even shared motherhood tips about raising two highly talented, disciplined and well-rounded children. Even though switching her field of study from mathematics to meteorology was not her original idea when entering the graduate program and she loves math, she embraced every obstacle and challenge with passion and determination until one day she loves meteorology and finds the beauty of it. Her personal and professional successes seem to be a perfect combination of passion, perseverance, intellectual capability, and a loving and caring personality.
Prof. Zou also reported her recent involvement in Chinese Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) and climate initiatives. As recipient of China's 'One Thousand Talents Program' through her alma mater Nanjing University of Information and Technology (formerly Nanjing Institute of Meteorology), and Science Director of China Meteorological Administration (CMA) NWP Center, Prof. Zou is working closely with scientists in China to improve numerical weather forecasting skills and to educate the next generation.
