About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Student
Location Lubbock, TX
Introduction I will be serving as the navigator for the TTUKa-1 mobile Doppler radar in VORTEX2. My primary research interests from the project are thermodynamic observations within the forward-flank region of supercells and the structure of the tornado as seen by high-resolution Doppler radar.

After growing up in Parker, Colorado, I received a B.S. degree in Earth Science with an emphasis in Meteorology from the University of Northern Colorado and a Masters in Atmospheric Science from Texas Tech University. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Wind Science and Engineering from TTU.

I have been participating in severe thunderstorm research projects since 2003 and have served with mobile mesonet, StickNet, and mobile radar crews.
