I am an expert in distilling information on weather and climate. My research team develops new capabilities from remote sensing data products to address basic and applied science questions. I have over 30 years of experience in data fusion and image analysis using multispectral satellite, radar, lidar, other meteorological observations, and numerical model output. A key tenet of our work is “adequacy for purpose” matching sensor data set characteristics with appropriate science questions and vice versa.
I teach introductory atmospheric sciences for freshman meteorology majors and advanced courses in meteorological remote sensing, atmospheric convection, and the dynamics of mesoscale precipitation systems.
I am a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society.
Ph.D. Atmospheric Sciences University of Washington 1996
B.S. Geology-Physics/Mathematics Brown University 1983
Area(s) of Expertise
Earth system observations, physical meteorology, remote sensing, marine low clouds, winter storms, tropical convection, orographic precipitation, and weather model evaluation.
