Patrick is the CIWRO team lead for the Severe Convective Probability and Impacts Group. His research efforts focus on the development of Probabilistic Hazard Information for severe weather threats to support and improve severe weather warnings. The work of Patrick and his colleagues promises to allow decision-makers to better react to severe weather events and provide a range of hazard information that covers different needs across society.

Patrick joined the weather community at the University of Oklahoma after receiving his degree in computer engineering from the same institution. His background in image analysis and software engineering assists with the advancement and realization of novel severe weather research concepts.
