Dr. Galarneau has broad research interests in multiscale aspects of planetary-scale, synoptic-scale, and mesoscale meteorology. He has particular interest in tropical cyclone formation environments, mesoscale convective system-driven heavy rains and extreme winds, extratropical cyclone life cycles, and dynamics and predictability of extreme weather events. He is also interested in analyzing and evaluating numerical weather prediction models.


Current Graduate Students:

  • Madelyn Powell: Maddie is working on an analysis of the epic flood in Kauai earlier in 2018 for her M.S. research.

Former Graduate Students:

  • Malori Redman (M.S., 2018): Malori received her M.S. in August 2018 after completing her research on the QBO influence on MJO-driven midlatitude synoptic-scale circulation anomalies. She was co-advised by Dr. Lon Hood from the UA Lunar Planetary Laboratory.
  • James Fowler (M.S., 2017): Jimmy received his M.S. in May 2017 after completing his research on TC-TC and TC-environment interactions in the North Atlantic basin.
  • Tyler Kranz (M.S., 2017): Tyler received his M.S. in May 2017 after completing his research on thunderstorm-terrain interactions in the Grand Canyon region. He was co-advised by Dr. Galarneau and Dr. Ken Cummins.
