- About Me -
I am an atmospheric physicist in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the College of Charleston. I received my Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences from Colorado State University , a M.S. in Physics from the University of Texas-Brownsville , and a B.S. in Mathematics and Physics from Morehouse College . For more details on my academic background, see my curriculum vitae and my College of Charleston bio.
- Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics Program -
The Department of Physics and Astronomy is pleased to introduce our new program in meteorology and atmospheric physics. This program is unique in the state of South Carolina. We offer a BA degree in meteorology with two concentrations in operational meteorology and in atmospheric physics. Our concentration in operational meteorology not only meets but exceeds all recommended American Meteorological Society guidelines for undergraduate students. Furthermore, our concentration in Atmospheric Physics makes us one of the few institutions in the United States with an undergraduate program which integrates atmospheric science with a traditional physics education.
If you are interested in our meteorology and atmospheric physics program, feel free to visit our webpage.
- About Research -I have broad research interests that are within the field of geophysical fluid dynamics that have applications in tropical meteorology, mesoscale meteorology, and boundary layer meteorology. These include: the evolution of the tropical cyclone boundary layer; secondary eyewall formation and eyewall replacement cycles in tropical cyclones; asymmetric mixing processes in geophysical vortices; and the dynamics of vortex resiliency and vortex merging. For more details, see my research page.
If you're interested in this research or might be interested in joining me in research, contact me and I'll be glad to talk to you about my ongoing research.
