Biography:

I study the sensitivities of tornadogenesis within supercell storms to microphysical processes using idealized numerical simulations. The primary goal of my work is to find environmental conditions that decrease (or increase) the sensitivity of supercells to microphysical processes that are parameterized within numerical models.
