Research Statement

My research interests include numerical simulation of cloud systems, with particular emphasis on the interactions between large-scale and cloud-scale processes, as well as turbulence and mixing in clouds and the boundary layer. I am also interested in time-lapse photography of clouds, and would like to find a collaborator with an interest in producing compilations for educational use.
