I'm a research meteorologist with CIRES, working at NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory (Physical Sciences Division). Since I arrived in Boulder in 1993, much of my work has focused on the weather over the tropical Pacific and its interactions with the underlying ocean and with global climate. I've also been involved in various investigations into the uses and abuses of data collected by wind profiling radars. Recently, I've been branching out into the Indian and western Atlantic basins, and have begun using Linear Inverse Modelling (LIM) as a tool to study ocean/atmosphere relationships.
I earned a B.S. in Meteorology from the SUNY-College at Oneonta, then went to the Univ. of Wisconsin - Madison where I earned an M.S. in Meteorology and a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences.
