  • B.S. Atmospheric Science, cum laude, University of Louisiana at Monroe, 2016

I joined the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in Fall 2016.  Prior to this I attended the University of Louisiana-Monroe for my bachelor’s degree in atmospheric science while minoring in history.  

Currently I am working with Dr. Sonia Lasher-Trapp on a DOE-ASR sponsored project investigating the microphysical influences on cold pool properties.  Specifically, we are looking at the effects of different microphysical processes in rain, graupel, and hail production and their influence on cold pool development and possible subsequent convective generation of new storms.  To investigate this I am using the CM1 model to perform high-resolution simulations on the NCSA Blue Waters Supercomputer.
