My research focuses on understanding the cloud microphysical structure associated with polarimetric radar signatures and how that information might be used by operational meteorologists to improve severe and/or winter weather warnings. As team leader of the National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) Phased Array Meteorological Studies Team, I also oversee data collection and analysis by a recently-developed phased array weather radar (to be upgraded to include polarimetric capabilities in 2018) to investigate potential benefits of “rapid-scan” data collection to the operational weather and aviation communities. I also have a longstanding interest in storm electrification. In support of my research interests, I have participated in numerous field campaigns over the past 25 years to collect ground-based, balloon-borne, and air-borne radar and microphysical data sets.
