Professor of Atmospheric Science, Iowa State University
My research interests primarily focus on improved understanding and prediction of small-scale atmospheric phenomena, especially thunderstorms and their rainfall. In addition, my research focuses on thunderstorm morphological evolution. I am also researching ways to better predict winds for wind energy purposes. Finally, my interest in severe storms includes using machine-learning techniques to improve the storm reports database for estimated severe wind speeds, and exploring climate change impacts on severe weather and flooding.

A heat dome occurs when a persistent region of high pressure traps heat over an area. The heat dome can stretch over several states and linger for days to weeks, leaving the people, crops and animals below to suffer...
