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.
