Our group uses numerical models and theory to research the dynamics and predictability of tropical cyclones, mesoscale convective systems, and convection initiation.

Graduate Student Opportunities

Interested in severe storm environments, thunderstorm dynamics, or tropical cyclone intensity change? We have openings for three graduate students to join our group in 2019!

August 6, 2018 - Congratulations to Aidan Kuroski on the successful defense of his M.S. thesis last Thursday! Aidan will soon begin with NWS Milwaukee/Sullivan, WI.

Our Group

We use a combination of numerical modeling and theory to conduct research into the dynamics and predictability of mesoscale phenomena, including convection initiation, mesoscale convective systems, and tropical cyclones. Group alumni have gone on to employment in both research and operations.
