Daniel has been with the Transportation Applications Group (TAG) since January 2020. His research is primarily focused on developing decision-support tools for transportation related forecasts. Research topics he has worked on include, winter weather, UAS weather applications, probabilistic forecasting, and post-processing algorithms for NWP and observational data. Daniel is a developer for the Multi-Radar Multi-Sensor (MRMS) system and has developed algorithms for the FAA and NWS operations. This includes the Freezing Rain Accumulation National Analysis (FRANA), which is a CONUS gridded analysis of ice accumulations from freezing rain/drizzle.
