Research Summary

  • Areas of interest are in synoptic and mesoscale dynamics. In particular, the morphology and evolution of extratropical cyclones, jet streak-frontal interactions, heavy rainfall and snowfall forecasting and precipitation efficiency are primary research areas. Related interests include aviation meteorology and severe local storms. Those areas of study wherein a significant impact may be made on the operational weather forecasting process are of greatest interest.
