Are you interested in urban heat islands?
Do you wonder how urban growth impacts the biodiversity of suburban ecosystems?
Are you interested in hurricanes or tornadoes?
Do you wonder how hurricanes become so powerful?
Would you like to help develop techniques that improve tornado forecasting?
Are you interested in using weather observations to predict tropical disease outbreaks?
Do you wonder how weather/climate impacts mosquito-transmitted diseases?
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, then I may have a great opportunity for you! I am always looking for motivated, hard-working graduate and undergraduate students interested in the following research areas:
- Synoptic-climatology of urban heat islands (GEOG)
- Spatio-temporal patterns of weather induced by urban heat islands (ESCI)
- The 3-D structure and evolution of hurricanes (ESCI / METR)
- The improvement of tropical cyclone intensity forecasts (ESCI / METR)
- The improvement of supercell / tornado forecasts during hurricane landfalls (ESCI / METR)
- Relationships between weather/climate and mosquito-transmitted tropical diseases (ESCI / GEOG)
- Spatio-temporal prediction of dengue fever (GEOG)
If you’re interested – use the links to your right to contact me and to learn more about the graduate and/or undergraduate programs in Meteorology (METR), Earth Sciences (ESCI), and Geography (GEOG) at UNC Charlotte.
