He has a broad interest in all things related to weather and climate, including droughts, floods, winter storms, heat waves, and long-term climate change (past, present, and future). His interest in U2U and the decision support tools comes from his extensive interactions in agriculture in Illinois over the years. Besides research, he works with a wide range of users and stakeholders, including students, teachers, homeowners, engineers, other scientists, farmers, as well as federal, state, and local officials on issues related to climate.
