Professional Interests

I received a Bachelor of Science in atmospheric sciences from the University of Utah in 2018. I initially started my undergraduate career with a strong interest in meteorology and forecasting. I worked in the student-run Ute Weather Center as a programmer and chief meteorologist. My interests shifted toward climatology, though, as I took various climate, radiation, and remote sensing courses. In my junior year, I joined Professor Gannet Hallar’s aerosol research group where I began research involving air chemistry and cloud microphysics. During my time as an undergraduate student, I researched dust in the Intermountain West where I applied my experience in synoptic meteorology to aerosol research. I developed a climatology surrounding dust events and identified potential source regions. I will continue my research at the University of Utah as a graduate student in Dr. Gannet Hallar’s group. I am also participating as a member of the Alta dust-on-snow pilot study working with Dr. McKenzie Skiles from the University of Utah Geography Department and the University’s Society, Water and Climate research cluster.
