I am an assistant professor in the Department of Meteorology and Atmospheric Science at Penn State University. My primary research interests involve tropical meteorology and data assimilation. In particular, how tropical convection and tropical cyclones interact with the large-scale flow and underlying ocean/land. I approach these questions with high-resolution numerical models, remote sensing observations, and theoretical analysis tools. A significant component of my research effort is also aimed at developing novel data assimilation techniques to improve the analysis and prediction of tropical cyclones and convection.
