Welcome! I am the faculty advisor for the Convective Storms research group, a part of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences department at NC State University (links above).

At NCSU, each spring I teach Mesoscale Weather Analysis and Forecasting for undergraduates. In the fall I teach graduate courses, including Mesoscale Modeling, Dynamics of Mesoscale Precipitation Systems, and Atmospheric Convection. In the past, I have also taught undergraduate courses such as Dynamic Meteorology I and II.

I currently serve the atmospheric sciences community as an editor for the American Meteorological Society's Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences (JAS). I have also been a mobile soundings coordinator for the VORTEX2 (Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes, 2009-2010), PECAN (Plains Elevated Convection at Night, 2015), and VORTEX-Southeast (2016) field projects, which form the basis of much of the ongoing research in our group.

I am always looking for potential graduate students who are interested in the dynamics of storms! For more on what my group studies, and opportunities for support, please visit the pages for the Convective Storms Group and our Project Summaries. Current advisees and students who are considering the meteorology major/minor at NCSU will find information at Dr. Parker's advising home base. Forecasters looking for information and web content pertaining to high-shear low-CAPE convection will find links and data at our HSLC/SHERB home page.
