I’m a research assistant and member of the Aerosol Group within the Department of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences here at NC State.  Under the advisement of Dr. Markus Petters, I study cloud microphysics, which is simply the microphysical processes that lead to the formation of clouds and precipitation.  Originally from northwest Indiana, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Atmospheric Science from Purdue University (Boiler Up!).  In January of 2015, I moved to Raleigh to begin the endeavor of graduate school and in doing so, I’m able to be a part of exciting and impactful research here at NC State!

Outside of research, I love exploring the outdoors, learning intensive sports (e.g., rock climbing, combative arts), and enjoying what Raleigh and North Carolina has to offer with friends.
