Our Group

We use a combination of numerical modeling and theory to conduct research into the dynamics and predictability of a wide variety of mesoscale phenomena, particularly relating to tropical cyclones and severe thunderstorms. Group alumni have gone on to employment in research, operations, and the private sector.
