Bio

I am a PhD student in the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (ATOC) program at the University of Colorado Boulder.  My current area of research in the Polar and Paleoclimate Modeling Research Group is directed toward the assessment of the simulated Arctic freshwater system in the CESM Large Ensemble, in CMIP5 models, and in forced simulations.  Prior to joining ATOC, I pursued a career in technology and engineering management with an emphasis on the development and delivery of new information technology products and solutions across numerous industries.  Building on this computational sciences foundation, I am focused on combining my special interests in climate sciences and climate modeling with computational data analytics.
