- Tropical Meteorology
My research focuses on a wide range of atmospheric convective processes in the tropics, from small cumulus to large mesoscale convective systems. I am interested in the environmental factors that affect precipitation production and convective organization.
- Radar Meteorology
Radar is a key tool in my work because of its ability to observe precipitation and storm structure over large time and space scales. I've used both ground-based and space-borne radars to create climatologies useful in understanding tropical convective processes and subtropical precipitating systems.
- Mesoscale-climate interactions
This component of my research pairs observations of precipitation and storm structure with mesoscale and global circulation models to better understand the interaction between mesoscale systems and the large-scale circulation.
