Welcome to my website!


I am a currently a Ph.D. student in Atmospheric Science under the supervision of Dr. John Molinari at the University at Albany/SUNY. I received my B.S. in Atmospheric Science from Cornell University in 2009.

My Ph.D. research centers around the impact of environmental vertical wind shear on tropical cyclone structure and intensity. More broadly, I am also interested in various aspects of tropical, mesoscale, and synoptic meteorology, as well as operational forecasting.
