B.S. Atmospheric Science (2016), Cornell University
While a student at Cornell, I spent a summer interning at NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. My project advisor was Dr. Vaishali Naik and focused on using airport visibility observations as a metric for haze and understanding how haze related to meteorology in the US. I continued this project as a senior honors thesis working with Dr. Natalie Mahowald. As a senior, I was also the Co-President of the Cornell Chapter of the American Meteorological Society and was active in outreach and undergraduate involvement within the Atmospheric Science Major. After graduation, I spent the summer working at the Office of the New Jersey State Climatologist where I worked on various projects ranging from the validity of Newark snowfall data to atmospheric visibility in New Jersey.
I am currently a second year PhD student and am working on the SENSE project by refining and implementing low cost carbon dioxide sensors to measure carbon dioxide concentrations in the Baltimore/Washington region. The project is apart of a lager NIST funded project to better measure greenhouse gas emissions in urban areas. The University of Maryland component of the project is known as FLAGG-MD.
The second part of my research involves utilizing the VEGAS Dynamic Vegetation Model in conjunction with WRF to simulate greenhouse gas emissions in the testbed area for Baltimore/Washington DC. I am currently testing the model by running forward simulations of carbon dioxide for the Hebei Province in Beijing China. The results can be found under the "Beijing Pollution" tab.
