Brief description of current research:

Mr. Flory works under Drs. Raymond Arritt, William Gutowski, and Eugene Takle on the North American Regional Climate Change Assessment Program (NARCCAP). Mr. Flory specializes in regional climate modeling and the creation, management, and data mining of large datasets. He has experience with numerous atmospheric models and their execution on a variety of parallel-processing environments. Mr. Flory also participated in a seasonal forecasting pilot project under the direction of Dr. Robert Horton (Agronomy) and has demonstrated the ability to summarize large model datasets in an easy to use, informative web-based platform.
