In this paper, we study the asymptotic behavior of the Hermite polynomials $H_{n}((2n+1)^{1/2}z)$ as $n\rightarrow \infty$. A globally uniform asymptotic expansion is obtained for $z$ in an unbounded region containing the right half-plane Re $z \geq 0$. A corresponding expansion can also be given for $z$ in the left half-plane by using the symmetry property of the Hermite polynomials. Our approach is based on the steepest-descent method for Riemann-Hilbert problems introduced by Deift and Zhou.
