Professional Interests

Dr. Reasor is a research meteorologist in the Hurricane Research Division of NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory in Miami, Florida. His primary research falls under the division's Hurricane Dynamics and Physics theme, and focuses on understanding the impact of vertical wind shear on hurricane structure and intensity change, using a combination of theory, numerical modeling and aircraft observations. He also works under the Observing Techniques theme on airborne Doppler-radar quality control and analysis techniques.
