- I study heavy precipitation and its link to flash flooding. I’m particularly interested in how heavy rainfall is organized and how atmospheric processes that produce different organizations. I also look to connect meteorology and hydrology by examining how rainfall organization is related to flash flooding patterns. I have done a little work in the past on lake effect snow, as well.
- I have an interest in history, and I have been slowly trying to piece together the story of the Great Flood of 1935, which affected portions of the Finger Lakes and the Souther Tier regions of New York.
