Look at any photo of Earth taken from space, and one of the first things you may notice is that clouds cover a large portion of the Earth’s surface. You may also notice that the clouds are not randomly scattered, but instead tend to cluster together. The tendency of clouds to gather near each other affects the weather that we experience, as well as the climate of our planet. My research is focused on understanding why clouds like to cluster together, and how this may impact the Earth’s changing climate.
