As knowledge about our atmosphere and its various phenomena progresses, the frontier of research will be at the interfaces: within the atmosphere, at the various time and space scales that weather occurs; and between the atmosphere and the things, and people, that it interacts with.

Complimenting my scientific interests, I am passionate about science communication and policy, especially around high impact, hazardous weather such as hurricanes, tornadoes, mid-latitude cyclones, and mesoscale convective systems. I am very interested in finding ways for the physical and social sciences to better work together to inform decisions at all levels of life, while bringing in as many perspectives as possible.
