I have been affiliated with NSSL since starting as a grad student last century (1995). My research has involved substantial development in the numerical cloud models COMMAS and WRF, primarily in microphysics and electrification, and 3D branched lightning parameterization. I have also dabbled in data assimilation using the ensemble Kalman Filter method. Current work includes 3-moment bulk microphysics and spectral bin microphysics development. Field work with the NOXP mobile polarimetric X-band radar as an operator/science-lead includes the VORTEX2 (2009-2010), DC3 (2012), and TORUS (2019, 2022) field programs.
