About me

Occupation Atmospheric Science Masters Student
Location Lubbock, Texas, United States
Introduction I am originally from Dalton, GA and am a second-year graduate student at Texas Tech University earning a Masters in Atmospheric Science. I earned my B.S. in Geography and Atmospheric Science at the University of Georgia in 2004. My research interests are focused on supercell to bow echo transitions and other thunderstorm outflow events. My first experience with field research occurred last year during the 2009 field phase of VORTEX2 when I worked with StickNet Team 3 as a deployer and navigator. This team was a trailer team responsible for deploying the coarse StickNet array. This year, I will be a deployer with StickNet Team 2 who is responsible for deploying the fine scale arrays, closer to the core of the storms. I consider my experience with the project to be an invaluable learning experience and hope the data collected can help further the science of meteorology. I have been fascinated with weather my entire life, and I have a great deal of respect for the forces of nature and how life-changing an event like a tornado can actually be. Weather affects everyone, everywhere on a daily basis, and I count myself lucky to be participating in this large-scale research initiative.
