Welcome!

I am a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Meteorology and Atmospheric Science at Penn State University. Prior to starting at Penn State in August 2022, I earned my B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Meteorology from Florida State University.

My interests broadly cover tropical weather and climate, with an emphasis on hurricanes - how they form, how they strengthen, and most recently, how they're simulated in climate models. I particularly enjoy teaching and mentorship, and hope to start a career as a professor in the next couple of years.

Explore the site to learn more about what I'm up to! Head to the "Television" and "Hurricane Blog" pages for videos and written content, meant to help make the nitty-gritty details of tropical meteorology more accessible!
