I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My research group focuses on 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. Our next major field campaign is the NSF-sponsored PRECIP project based in Taiwan and Japan Spring/Summer 2020. I am currently seeking a graduate student to work on this upcoming project.
