Research Interests

My research delves into the broad field of tropical meteorology. Using TRMM LIS and MERRA2 reanalysis data, my current thesis work attempts to find the correlation between lightning and environmental variables, such as CAPE, column saturation fraction, wind shear and large-scale rising motion. Other research interests include lightning, stratiform and convective parameterizations, tropical cyclone tornadoes and tropical cyclone lightning as it relates to intensity changes.
