Postdoctoral Fellow II

Mesoscale & Microscale Meteorology Laboratory

National Center for Atmospheric Research

Recent Happenings:

DECEMBER 2021:

I successfully defended my dissertation

& completed my Ph.D. in Meteorology at

the University of Oklahoma! 

FEBRUARY 2022:

OCTOBER 2020:

I participated in a Webinar hosted by the American Meteorological Society's Board on Representation, Accessibility, Inclusion and Diversity titled "The World Through

My Eyes: I'm an Atmospheric Scientist

with a Cognitive and/or Learning Disability".

In this webinar, I discussed my graduate school journey with ADHD and provided resources to help others better understand and accommodate students and colleagues with the condition.

SEPTEMBER 2020:

I was featured as part of the American Meteorological Society's Board for Early

Career Professionals Spotlight Series! 

OCTOBER 2021:

I began working as a Postdoctoral Fellow I 

in the Prediction, Assimilation & Risk Communication Division [PARC] of

NCAR's Mesoscale & Microscale Meteorology Laboratory [NCAR/MMM]!

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Center for Atmospheric Research's Mesoscale & Microscale Meteorology Laboratory [NCAR/MMM] in Boulder, Colorado.

I  obtained my Ph.D. in Fall 2021 from the School of Meteorology

at the University of Oklahoma. Throughout my doctoral program, 

I was employed as a Graduate Research Assistant at the former Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies [OU/CIMMS] in affiliation with the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory in Norman, Oklahoma.

I received my M.S. in Meteorology from the University of Oklahoma in 2017 & my B.S. in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2014.

My research expertise & interests lie primarily within the realm of mesoscale meteorology, severe convective storms, atmospheric dynamics, & numerical weather prediction. I am particularly interested in understanding the multiscale process interactions

& convection-environment feedbacks that occur during

 high-impact severe weather events.
