Affiliate Assistant Professor

Assistant Professor, University of Wisconsin

Ph. D., Atmospheric Science, Colorado State University

Research Areas

Collecting and analyzing data to better understand cloud and mesoscale processes leading to high-impact weather around the world. Our primary observational tool is weather radar, of multiple wavelengths and platforms, to study precipitating systems in a range of environments: from tropical oceanic convection associated with the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) to frontal systems and convective storms with and without impacts of mountainous terrain.
