Daniel Stechman

Postdoctoral Research Associate

To date, my research has primarily utilized airborne in-situ microphysical and thermodynamic observations coupled with airborne Doppler radar observations from the 2015 Plains Elevated Convection at Night (PECAN) project to explore the microphysical characteristics and processes associated with the trailing stratiform region of mesoscale convective systems (MCSs). I am currently becoming involved in the analysis and interpretation of observations collected during the Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes Experiment-Southeast (VORTEX-SE).
