I study middle atmosphere dynamics and transport. My focus is on the winter polar vortex and planetary wave breaking. I am interested in both upward and downward vertical coupling during stratospheric warming events, Lagrangian trajectory analysis, and global teleconnections. I have published work on data and model validation, ozone loss, polar mesospheric clouds, the diagnosis of the polar vortices and stratospheric anticyclones, stratospheric warming events, elevated stratopause events, and tropospheric cold air outbreaks.
