In general, my research is driven by the desire to expand our process understanding of different phenomena found within the Earth's atmosphere. In pursuing this goal I perform high-resolution short time scale studies to further understand local phenomena and small-scale processes that may have large-scale (temporal and spatial) impacts, as well as low-resolution climate simulations assessing climate impacts stemming from human activity.

Below you may find a brief overview of my research, which focuses on feedback mechanisms triggered in polluted marine boundary clouds. In addition to this work I have explored the potential climate impacts due to the large-scale deployment of wind turbines and the geophysical limits of wind power imposed by the dynamics of the atmosphere.

Many studies have shown that emmitting hygroscopic particles (i.e. water affine aerosol) into clean marine low-lying clouds...
