Graduate Research Assistant

Research Interests

The focus of my research is mesoscale meteorology, namely the dynamics and thermodynamics of supercell thunderstorms and tornadogenesis. Current projects include the effect of low-level boundary layer features on supercell maintenance and tornadogenesis in idealized simulations, as well as the influence of global-scale teleconnection patterns on localized storm environment in the United States.
