Professional Interests

Dr. Fischer is a National Research Council (NRC) Postdoctoral Research Associate at NOAA/AOML's Hurricane Research Division (HRD) in Miami, FL. His research interests involve environmental and convective influences on tropical cyclone structure and intensity change, with an emphasis on processes favoring tropical cyclone rapid intensification. His research utilizes a combination of satellite and aircraft observations, reanalysis products, numerical modeling, and machine-learning techniques.
