Research interests:

Dr. Thomas Birner (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München), Dr. John A. Knaff (NOAA/Cooperative Institude for Research in the Atmosphere), and I are currently working on the structure of the Upper Troposphere and Lower Stratosphere above tropical cyclones using a combination of GPS Radio Occultation temperature retrievals, space-borne radar/lidar data, reanalysis data sets, and regional numerical simulations. We are analyzing the cold signal observed near the tropopause (referred to as TLC, for tropopause layer cooling) on synoptic scales and its potential feedbacks on storm structure and dynamics.

Other areas of research I am interested in include:
