I am a second-year M.S. student at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I am a recent graduate of Purdue University, where I received a B.S. in atmospheric science and a minor in sociology. At UIUC, I am a member of Bob Rauber's research group, and a member of the ground assets team for the NASA-funded IMPACTS project. My research is focused on a specific case from the 2020 IMPACTS deployment, with an emphasis on microphysics data.
In addition to being a graduate student at UIUC, I am also a National Weather Service Pathways Intern at the Detroit/Pontiac WFO in White Lake, MI. The internship is mostly project-based, and my project evaluates the decision-making strategies of vulnerable outdoor populations during severe weather. I also maintain NWS upper air certification.
My research interests include cloud microphysics, winter storms, and social science applications of atmospheric science. As a research scientist, I hope to improve the transition of academic research to operational applications.
