Current and Past Research

Doctorate Research

I'm currently studying a relatively new method of describing uncertainty within model physics to improve high-resolution, ensemble model predictions of winter weather, focusing on lake-effect snow and orographic precipitation.

Masters Research

I investigated multi-physics, high-resolution model ensemble simulations that I ran for a 2013 case study (see above) to understand the sensitivity of lake-effect snow forecasts to the choice of several physics parameterizations.

Undergraduate Research

I completed a project on several microphysical and thermodynamic factors impacting the characteristics of the rain/snow transition zone in Sierra Nevada winter storms.
