Research Experience

  • Construction and analysis of a simple model of equatorial convectively coupled waves to explore the basic mechanisms of convection that determine the convective wave structure.
  • Production and analysis of high resolution simulations of convection and tropical waves using SAM, WRF, and SP-CAM.
  • Analysis of Energy Sources, sinks and flows in the Madden-Julian Oscillation.

Awards
