Biography: I currently serve as the director of the Iowa Flood Center. My scientific research interests concern multiple aspects of rainfall measurement, modeling, forecasting, and estimation, using radar and satellite remote sensing. My work at the Iowa Flood Center focuses particularly on understanding the genesis of floods through field experimentation and modeling, as well as the quantification of uncertainty in hydrologic prediction at a range of temporal and spatial scales.
