Charles (Chip) Helms - University at Albany, SUNY
MODIS 250m Visible AL93L 17 October 2011

Having received my doctorate at University at Albany under Lance Bosart in 2018, I am now a NPP postdoctoral fellow at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. I received my BS in Atmospheric Sciences (with a second major in Applied Mathematics) from the University of North Carolina at Asheville in 2009 and my MS in Meteorology from Florida State Univeristy in 2012 under the guidance of Bob Hart. My primary research interests focus around cloud dynamics, particularly the upscale impacts of clouds as well as the implications of the convective environment with respect to the evolution of deep convection. Thus far, my research has been focused on deep convection in tropical cyclogenesis; however, I am interested in expanding to other regimes as well.

The image in the banner at the top is a MODIS 250m resolution visible image of a tropical disturbance (93L) on 17 November 2011. The low-level swirl is located just off the northern shore of the Yucatan penesula (visible along the bottom of the image) and has just recently been jetisoned out from under the main convective region to the east.
