I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography. I’m working in the Hurricane Research Group under the advisement of Dr. Isaac Ginis. My research focuses on understanding the surface and boundary layer wind structure during the landfall of hurricanes. As part of that project, I am developing a physics-based three-dimensional Hurricane Boundary Layer (HBL) wind model that simulates the surface wind during landfall considering the frictional effect of local land cover characteristics. A demonstration of the HBL model simulated surface wind for Hurricane Michael (2018) in 1km resolution can be viewd here.
