I developed and continue to teach a course in broadcast/media meteorology. The course is focused on communicating weather and its impacts to non-expert audiences across a range of media, from television and radio to new media such as websites, blogs, and social networks. My teaching is in addition to my full-time work as a meteorologist and executive producer at WRAL-TV, where I manage a highly successful intern program for students interested in learning more about broadcast meteorology in a top-25 market.
My research interests include the communication of weather information — especially weather uncertainty information — to audiences ranging from other experts to non-expert publics, especially with regards to high-impact weather events such as severe storms, hurricanes, and winter weather.
