Research Interests

Wave breaking: Characterizing the influence of correlated noise on the timing, spatial distribution, and energetics of cyclonic and anti-cyclonic mid-latitude breaking events. I look at the changes to wave symmetry and tilt via turbulent fluxes of heat, momentum, and potential vorticity, which are compared across a series of noise frequency filters.


Wavelet deoising: Implementation of denoising treatments to model input data for mesoscale models. Methods for total and partial removal of noisy frequencies using combination wavelet and Gaussian filters are used to create a spectrum of noisy frequencies.
