Research Topic: Cloud Microphysics and Precipitation Dynamics

My dissertation research focuses on the role of kilometer-scale or finer vertical velocity variations on cloud hydrometeor spectrum development and spatial precipitation response utilizing observations from the in-situ dynamic, thermodynamic, and cloud/precipitation probes and remote profiling cloud radar/lidar data of the UWKA.

Future research questions include: How do hydrometeor size distributions respond to kilometer-scale vertical velocity fluctuations in an idealized model setting? Are coarser bulk models sensitive to this hydrometeor/precipitation response? If this dynamic scale is not explicitly resolved, what can observations tell us about how may this be parameterized at subgrid scales?
