My work primarily focuses on rainfall produced by tropical cyclones. I have utilized both radar reflectivity and rain gauge data to quantify spatial patterns of convective and stratiform rainfall within these systems. I have also worked on projects examining both human and biophysical responses to landfalling hurricanes.
