Matt is a first year M.S. student in atmospheric sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He received a B.S. in meteorology with a minor in mathematics from the University of Oklahoma in 2019. During the spring of 2019, he participated in the TORUS project, a multi-organization field campaign that observed supercells and tornadogenesis through radar and UAS. Matt's M.S. research aims to analyze the effects of anthropogenic climate change on extreme tornado events through the use of pseudo global warming methodology and high resolution WRF model simulations.
Matt's research interests include severe weather and climate change impacts on extreme weather events.
