PhD Candidate, Department of Atmospheric Science, Colorado State University

Growing up, I observed that people across the globe have simultaneously a common fascination with and hatred of weather. My PhD work focuses on an aspect of the weather and climate system that is both the bane and boon of billions of people worldwide: tropical thunderstorms. In an effort to help make better predictions and forecasts, I try to answer very basic questions about the physical characteristics of these storms and how they might be affected by climate change.
