I am a climatologist whose work centers around rainfall. Currently, I am working to analyze rainfall patterns from landfalling tropical cyclones. I utilize a GIS to spatially analyze radar reflectivity and precipitation amount data, identifying where heavy rainfall occurs within each storm. My goal is to develop a model to forecast the location of heavy rainfall using knowledge of atmospheric and land surface forcing on the development of rainfall.
