Precipitation – or the lack thereof – and severe weather have a large impact on our society and our nation. My research group studies the dynamical and microphysical processes by which precipitation forms and evolves in various types of storms with the goal to improve current and future predictions of precipitation amounts and distributions and to provide reliable guidelines for developing future observational networks and adapting to a changing climate.
My publications are up-to-date on Google Scholar.
