Research Overview

Professor Bordoni is interested in the dynamics of important atmospheric processes that influence weather and climate. Her work specifically focuses on the dynamics of monsoon systems, and aims at understanding fundamental dynamical mechanisms which are implicated in their existence, their location and different geographical features, and which might help understand how monsoons change with changing climates.

List of Research Areas

large-scale atmospheric dynamics, tropical meteorology and monsoons, interactions between large- and meso-scale circulations
