About Me

I was born in Chico, CA and grew up in the small town of Orland, CA. I graduated from the University of California, Davis where I completed my B.S in Atmospheric Science and I am currently a graduate student at the University of Utah working towards completing my M.S degree. My hobbies include watching and playing sports (basketball, golf, football, soccer), hiking, and spending time with family and friends.

Professional Interests

I have explored different aspects of atmospheric science that include studying the evolution of cloud top morphology from GOES during my undergraduate research. Now in my graduate studies, aerosols are my primary research interest. Currently, I am working to understand the interface between new particle formation and boundary-layer processes using data from the Cold Fog Amongst Complex Terrain (CFACT) field campaign that was just completed in the winter of 2022. I also have a huge interest in data science and its application to atmospheric and climate science.

Research Areas

  • New particle formation
  • Boundary-Layer Processes
