I grew up in Greensboro, NC and became interested in meteorology at a young age when the Superstorm of 1993 brought several inches of snow just in time for my 4th birthday. I graduated from NC State with a B.S. in Mathematics and a B.S. in Meteorology. I recently completed my M.S. in Atmospheric Science, also at NC State. After finishing up an internship with US EPA this summer, I am beginning work on my Ph.D. here at NC State under the direction of Dr. Gary Lackmann.

Research Description

My primary research interests lie in using numerical models to study the response of high-impact weather systems to climate change. For my Master's research, I focused on changes in North Atlantic extratropical cyclones due to warming. For my Ph.D., I plan to examine how climate change will impact the extratropical transition of tropical cyclones.
