- Ph.D., Atmospheric Sciences, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 2015
Current RolePostdoctoral Appointee, Climate & Atmospheric Science Department
CapabilitiesCloud microphysics, cirrus and mixed phase clouds, and radar and mesoscale meteorology; software development.
- Postdoctoral researcher: Analyzed cloud microphysical and radar observations of convective clouds in the United Kingdom sampled during the Convective Precipitation Experiment (COPE) to help improve flash flood predictions (University of Wyoming).
- Graduate researcher: Analyzed 6 months of cirrus microphysical observations to improve representations of ice clouds in global models; quantified the uncertainty in cloud microphysical measurements due to ice crystal shattering on airborne particle probe tips (University of Illinois).
- Author of several peer-reviewed publications.
