I use A-Train as well as ISCCP geostationary satellite data to unfold the mystery behind the convective transport of aerosols and the influence of those transported aerosols on those clouds. I use the software IDL to analyse the data. My primary research interests are:
- Transport of Pollutants from the Lower Troposphere to Upper Troposphere and Lower Stratosphere.
- Physical and Dynamic Structure of Deep Convection
- Analysis of Satellite data (NASA A-Train, ISCCP)
- WRF-Chem

Current Research Projects

Life Cycle analysis of deep convections to understand the role of cloud dynamics and the physical structure on aerosol transport to the upper troposphere.

Impact of aerosols on Deep convective microstructure and dynamics.
