My research is mainly focused on improving our understanding of the West African monsoon and how it interacts with the tropical Atlantic. This includes work on the life-cycle of African easterly waves including how they interact with convection and the African easterly jet and how they develop into tropical cyclones. It also includes work on seasonal to inter annual variability of the West African monsoon and how this interacts with the tropical Atlantic
