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.
