I am interested in furthering our understanding of the relationship between weather and society. To do this, I study how individuals and institutions cope with hazardous winter weather. My work has been published in a variety of meteorological and geographic journals including Weather and Forecasting; Weather, Climate, and Society; andMeteorological Applications.
