My current scholarly and research interests lie in the use of Geographic Information Systems to analyze different aspects of climate variability and change. More specifically, I am looking at:
- Temperature trends and variability over the United States
- Trends in extreme climatic events over the southeastern US (historical and future), their predictability with respect to large-scale circulation patterns, and the potential vulnerability of local communities to such events
- The detection of hotspots of climate change over the United States.
- The development of a socio-economic atlas of Alabama, with an emphasis on the Black Belt.
