Two funded PhD positions are available in the newly-formed Severe Weather and Climate group in Stanford's Earth System Science department. I am seeking creative, hard-working students interested in fluid dynamics questions related to storms and climate. Qualified students will have high marks in math and physics classes, and independent research experience is desirable. More information can be found at

Students will have the possibility of participating in a hurricane field campaign if they choose to pursue hurricane-related questions, which is the primary focus of my current research. Other possible topics include heatwave and cold front dynamics, supercell/tornadogenesis, and severe weather occurrence thresholds in a warming world, and students will have considerable freedom to shape their own projects. Potential applicants are encouraged to contact me in advance of applying (

Applications for Fall 2018 are currently open and due December 5th. Please forward to possible candidates.
