I study how operational meteorologists issue weather warnings. My goal is to find ways to help the National Weather Service improve their policies and to change the role of different publics in this partnership.
I explore how meteorology students conceptualize risks associated with storm chasing and forecasting. My hope is to understand the tacit ways that novices become expert forecasters and atmospheric researchers.
I research the ways that meteorological history shapes current technological practices. My period of interest is WW II to 1990s, with special emphasis on the National Weather Service modernization.
