I started my PhD program in 2016 in Meteorology and Physical Oceanography (MPO) at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science
(RSMAS) as a National Science Foundation
Graduate Research Fellow. I am working in Dr. Nick Shay's Upper Ocean Dynamics Lab. My research is based on understanding the time evolving dynamical and thermodynamical structure of tropical cyclones in order to help forecast their intensity change. My specific interests are in coupled air-sea interactions, boundary layer processes, hurricane response to vertical-shear, and vertical velocity characteristics at all heights and magnitudes.
I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Oklahoma (OU),
where I graduated summa cum laude in
and had minors in mathematics, physics, and computer science.
