Research in our group focuses on the structure and dynamics of the atmospheric boundary layer, turbulence, and interactions between Earth's surface and the atmosphere. We use analytical methods, field experiments, and numerical simulations to address scientific questions of importance for weather and climate, air quality, water resources, and human health.
Recent topics of interest include convective boundary layers, boundary layers over complex surface topography, transport in the urban environment, and particle-laden flows. We also develop new numerical tools to study these problems using large eddy simulation.
