Nusrat Yussouf

Senior Research Scientist

Dr. Yussouf’s research is on development of a storm-scale ensemble prediction system with the goal to enable next-generation severe storm warning capabilities referred to as Warn-on-Forecast to support United States’ vision for a Weather Ready Nation. Her work involves enhancement of a frequently updated, regional-scale, on-demand, probabilistic, high-resolution ensemble data assimilation and prediction system for high impact weather events, including extreme rainfall, flash floods, tornado outbreaks, major aviation disruptions due to severe convective thunderstorms and land falling tropical cyclones. She is developing capabilities that can be incorporated into the operational National Weather Service (NWS) storm-scale ensemble data assimilation and forecast systems.
