I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My current research focuses on understanding sources of subseasonal to seasonal (S2S) predictability and investigating ways to improve our operational long-range models. Specifically, I focus on analyzing and extending the predictability of atmospheric blocking events and their associated extreme weather, as well as S2S prediction of severe weather. Longer range prediction is important for mitigation of extreme events, and my research may prove useful to several socio-economic sectors, such as energy, agriculture, and emergency management.
I have served as a TA for ATMS-302 "Atmospheric Dynamics I", served as the lecturer for ATMS-140 "Climate and Global Change", and was the Department of Atmospheric Sciences Student Organization president for 2018-2019.
