Research Programs



Atmospheric transport and mixing

My research uses aircraft and satellite data, computer models, and theory to investigate the large-scale transport of atmospheric constituents, including trace species such as ozone and water vapor, and dynamical properties properties like potential vorticity.

My students and I are using data collected by the NCAR/NSF Gulfstream V research aircraft during the START08 field program to diagnose transport processes in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere.

Climate Dynamics

Current research involves the use of data from the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite to understand climatic and dynamical processes in the tropical atmosphere. We are using TRMM data and the Weather Research and Forecasting model to study propagating precipitation systems in the tropics.
