I am a native of Pembroke, Massachusetts and a Ph.D. student here at ASRC working with Drs. Scott Miller and Jeff Freedman. My pursuits in the atmospheric sciences are motivated by my long held enthusiasm for weather and my desire to contribute to the scientific community. During my undergraduate career, I studied inter-annual wind patterns within a glacierized valley in the Peruvian Andes under the direction of Dr. Robert Hellstrom and interned with the National Weather Service in Taunton, MA where I worked with the Northeast River Forecast Center to integrate meteorological and hydrological data into a GIS interface. My current research interests generally fall within the realm of the boundary layer with focuses on Land-Atmosphere Interaction, Instrumentation, and Renewable Energy. During my free time, I enjoy exploring new places and experiencing nature by hiking, biking, and kayaking.
