Kevin Reed’s research interests include understanding the capability of global climate models to simulate extreme weather events and the impact of model design choices on the simulation of such extremes in a global context. One specific area of his research has focused on the ability of the National Center for Atmospheric Research’s Community Atmosphere Model (CAM) to simulate tropical cyclones at high-resolutions. Additionally, he studies how extreme events, including tropical cyclones, may change as a result of a changing climate.
