Hello and Welcome!

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE).

I have many research interests in the areas of atmospheric hazards, extreme events, and applied climatology. Recent research has focused on:

  • The impact of weather on transportation
  • The climatology of various types of windstorms
  • Geographies of wind fatalities, and of warned and unwarned fatalities due to convective wind and tornadoes
  • The travel of tornado debris
  • Extreme precipitation events and how these may change under a changing climate
  • Public perception and understanding of National Weather Service watches, warnings, and advisories for severe weather

Updates on current and ongoing projects can be found below. You can also view a brief CV. Other items coming soon!
