Interests include hurricane structure and energetics, moist convection and severe convective storms in the tropical and the mid-latitudes, mesoscale convective systems, mixing in cumulus clouds, and the interaction of convective clouds with the boundary layer. Research has been primarily with observations; emphasis is on aircraft data. Recent focus is on the use of GPS dropsondes in several hurricanes including Bonnie (1998), Guillermo (1997), Humberto (2001). Publications in the last few years include the following.
