I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student under the co-advisement of Dr. Allison Wing and Dr. Rhys Parfitt. I defended my M.S. in 2020 on the representation of precipitation from tropical cyclones in global reanalysis data sets

I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 2016. During my undergraduate studies, I had the opportunity to enroll in two meteorology courses and tutor students in the subject. I also conducted research into how meteorological conditions affect particulate matter concentrations in urban areas near interstate highways. These experiences helped me see that I would like to continue learning about meteorology and atmospheric science. After working in water and wastewater engineering for a time, I decided to pursue graduate school and switch fields to study meteorology!

I was born and raised in Central Texas and moved to Florida in August 2018. When I am not studying or working, you can find me hiking or trail running with my dog, reading, camping and traveling, and attempting to cook.

M.S. Thesis: Representation of tropical cyclone precipitation in global reanalysis datasets.
