research overview

  • My research vision is to advance our understanding of precipitation microphysical processes and cloud dynamics with the ultimate aim of improving parameterizations in numerical models. I pursue this vision by analyzing ground-, air-, and space-based radar observations to retrieve raindrop number and size estimates that lead to improved global rainfall estimates and improved understanding of precipitation processes and dynamics.
