Personal profile

Personal profile

My research falls within the disciplines of physical meteorology, radar meteorology and mesoscale meteorology. I maintain very active programs in all these areas. Currently I have three research grants from the National Science Foundation and much of my work involves collaborative efforts with other faculty members and scientists from other institutions. I love field research -- there is nothing more exciting in atmospheric science than living through (and flying through!) the weather you ultimately study, especially when you are using the most sophisticated state-of-the-art instruments. Field campaigns lead to new discoveries, the most exciting aspect of science. I have been an investigator in twenty major field research programs and have worked extensively with conventional, dual-Doppler, and airborne radars, dual-channel microwave radiometers, optical array and scattering probes, as well as other aircraft, ground-based and satellite-based instruments. My group also uses cloud and mesoscale models to simulate a range of microphysical and mesoscale phenomena.

I require my graduate students to produce research of publication quality and I encourage them all to participate, and preferably take the lead, in publication of their work. Most of my graduated students have published their research. I also strongly encourage all my students to present the results of their research at national and international scientific conferences. I believe it is critical for their self-development to have these opportunities for national exposure. In addition, exposure enhances their employment opportunities. I make every attempt to include my students in national field research programs. I have given many students, including department students not directly under my supervision, the opportunity to participate in national field programs that involve scientists from many universities, national centers and laboratories. My grants will have supported student participation in thirteen field projects by the end of 2006. I also involve many of my students in collaborative research with colleagues at other institutions.
