I am a research meteorologist in the Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology Laboratory (MMM) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). My interests are in tropical meteorology (especially hurricanes), atmospheric predictability, and more broadly, the science behind weather prediction.
I received my PhD in Meteorology and Oceanography in 2014 from the Rosenstiel School at the University of Miami (Miami, Florida, USA). In 2016, I traded the beach for the mountains and moved to Colorado to become an Advanced Study Program postdoc at NCAR. In 2018, I joined MMM as a Scientist I, and a promotion to Scientist II followed in 2022.
One of my overarching research goals is to improve the prediction of extreme weather phenomena. I am versed in analyzing numerical simulations as well as observations. Recently, I’ve become hooked by global cloud-resolving models and their promise to predict the weather from local to planetary scales. On any given day you will probably find me running and anlyzing global cloud-resolving simulations.
