I am a research associate at the University of Utah working with the University of Utah's Land-Atmosphere Interactions Research and Fire Modeling groups. Currently, I am an aspiring atmospheric scientist with a Ph.D. from the University of Utah, a M.S. from Plymouth State University and a B.S. from the University at Albany. The weather has always fascinated me, which has led me to pursue a career in atmospheric science. Research interests include fire weather and modeling, land-atmosphere interactions, air quality, and climate change. More specifically, my current research topics include investigating "exceptional" air quality events such as wildfires and wind-blown dust, and constraining greenhouse gas emissions using atmospheric models.

Research Group I am part of Dr. John Lin's research group in the Department of Atmopsheric Sciences at the University of Utah. More information about the group can be found here...
