As the assistant state climatologist for Florida, my work involves providing direct climate services, outreach, and applied climate research. I coordinate user data requests and provide information about the historical and current climate and weather of Florida and the broader Southeast U.S. region. My research broadly explores climate trends and extremes, risk and vulnerability, and the impacts of natural disasters on communities and natural ecosystems. My research interests include stakeholder-driven research and engagement, and developing applied research projects to address needs and inform decision making. I serve as the co-coordinator of the Florida Climate Institute, the Florida state co-coordinator of the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network (CoCoRaHS), and served as the program coordinator of the Florida Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE) Program.
