Research Interests

My research interests include mesoscale circulations, tropical meteorology and tropical cyclones. I have focused on weather and climate of Hawai‘i and severe weather and its impacts upon society. To this end I helped found and currently direct the Pacific El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) Applications Center which provides experimental climate forecasts and applications information to a number of U.S.-affiliated Pacific Islands.
