    Research Interests: I have broad research interests in planetary-scale, synoptic-scale and mesoscale meteorology. I work on a variety of multiscale (time and space) research problems that relate to the weather and climate of higher- and middle-latitude regions as well as the tropics. Research problems that involve winter storms, hurricanes, organized convective systems and the predictability of individual flow regimes are especially attractive to me. I am especially interested in problems at the weather-climate interface. I am also interested in the weather analysis and forecasting process including forecast verification studies and the measurement and assessment of forecaster skill.

    Corbosiero, Kristen L.

    Assistant Professor

    Research Interests: Dr. Kristen L. Corbosiero studies the structure and intensity change of tropical cyclones using both observational data sets and high-resolution numerical models. Specifically, she is interested in understanding the physical processes responsible for the formation of hurricane rainbands and secondary eyewalls, and how tropical cyclones respond to, and evolve in, vertical wind shear. In addition, Dr. Corbosiero is currently pursuing research aimed at understanding the role of cloud microphysical parameterizations on the track and intensity of simulated tropical cyclones, the mechanisms of rapid intensity change in hurricanes, and the impact of recurving eastern North Pacific tropical cyclones on the North American Monsoon System.
