My name is Amanda Jones and I am a first year graduate student pursuing my masters degree in Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am currently working with Dr. Nicole Riemer in the area of cloud physics and chemistry.
In my research, I will be using a cloud parcel model and the particle-resolved model PartMC-MOSAIC. I will be revising the cloud parcel model to include entrainment with trajectories from a 3D cloud simulation.
