About

My research emphasizes the use of climate science, both modeling and analysis, for investigating the causes and future impacts of climate change. I also lead a team that conducts meteorological measurements and analysis of data taken at the surface and from tall towers within and near utility scale wind farms. The objectives of this research are:

 

  • Improve the predictive skill of wind forecast models
  • Understand wind-farm power reduction due to turbine wakes
  • Evaluate the impact of wind farms on crops
