Research Interests

I study convective clouds and precipitation using ground- and space-based radars with an emphasis on determining how convection organizes and how this organized convection, in turn, impacts the large-scale environment and climate. I regularly collaborate with others in the ARM and ASR community toward understanding these problems, including ways to represent mesoscale convective organization in global climate models.

Professional Experience

I was highly involved in the ARM deployments during TWP-ICE in Darwin, Australia, AMIE in the equatorial Indian Ocean, and GoAmazon2014/15 in the central Amazon. I also served on the ARM Radar Science steering committee and am an active member of ASR.
