Research Interests

I am an international leader in the application of short-wavelength radars for cloud and precipitation research from ground-based and space-based platforms. My current research focuses on radar meteorology, cloud and precipitation microphysics and dynamics, retrieval algorithm development, cloud modeling, and radar simulators.

Professional Experience

I am the leader of the DOE Atmospheric Systems Research (ASR) radar science group. I am a member of the Mission Advisory Group and algorithm development team of the European Space Agency Earth Clouds Aerosols Radiation Experiment (EARTHCARE) Explorer Mission. I also served for three years (2007-2009) as Associate Chief Scientist for the US DOE Atmospheric Radiation Measurements (ARM) program.
