Dear friends,

Pleasejoin me in welcoming Dr. Vijay Tallapragada as the as the new 
Chief of the Global Climate and Weather Modeling Branch (GCWMB) at the 
Environmental Modeling Center (EMC), effective July 12, 2015.

Prior to joining NCEP/EMC in 2006, Dr. Tallapragada was a Research 
Associate at the Department of Meteorology in Florida State University, 
Tallahassee, FL for seven years, where he was mentored by world renowned 
tropical meteorologist Prof. T.N. Krishnamurti. Dr. Tallapragada holds a 
Ph.D. in tropical meteorology, M.Tech. Degree in Atmospheric Science and 
M.S. Degree in Meteorology. He has more than 50 refereed publicationsto 
his name.

Before becoming the GCWMB Branch Chief, Dr. Tallapragada served as the 
Hurricane Team Leader at EMC. In this capacity, Dr. Tallapragada was 
responsible for developing and implementing state-of-the-art hurricane 
models for providing operational forecast guidance to the US Operational 
Tropical Cyclone Forecast Agencies (NHC, CPHC and JTWC). He was 
instrumental in developing and advancing the NCEP operational Hurricane 
Weather Research and Forecast (HWRF) modeling system. This model has 
become one of the best community based models in the world, and is used 
by both operations and research. He coordinated various tropical cyclone 
research activities within NOAA, as well as partnering between 
government, academic, and private organizations. His experience with 
community modeling (including research to operations projects), 
partnering and project management will serve him well in his new role.
