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. In 2015, I completed my M.S. in Atmospheric Science, also at NC State. After completing an internship with US EPA, I began work on my Ph.D. here at NC State under the direction of Dr. Gary Lackmann. My dissertation research is focused on climate change effects on the extratropical transition of tropical cyclones.

Research Description

My research interests include examining high-impact weather events, in the context of both current and future climates, and bridging the gap between weather and climate by connecting global scale processes to synoptic and mesoscale phenomena. I am also interested in the real-world applications and communication of scientific research.
