I am a new postdoc in the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. My current research interests explore the intersection of climate variability, big data, compound extremes, and machine learning.
I received my PhD in May 2020 from the Department of Earth System Science at The University of California, Irvine. My research in Dr. Gudrun Magnusdottir’s Modeling Lab used observations and global climate model experiments to identify linkages between Arctic climate change (especially due to sea ice) and the large-scale atmospheric circulation in the mid-latitudes.
I graduated from Cornell University with a B.Sc. in Atmospheric Sciences and completed my honors thesis using the new Community Earth System Model Large Ensemble Project (LENS) to understand changes in the onset of spring through the 21st century. During my time at Cornell, I was president of our American Meteorological Society Chapter, CCAMS, where we focused on severe weather emergency management, forecasting techniques, and community outreach. Additionally, I worked in Dr. Toby Ault’s Emergent Climate Risk Lab, ECRL, who assisted in the guidance of my spring onset research project.
At any one time, you can probably find me buried away forecasting the weather, making climate visualizations on Twitter, trying the local sketchy diner, or enjoying a day in the mountains
