I am currently working with Dr. Kumjian on RELAMPAGO, an atmospheric research field campaign to Argentina to study severe convective storms. I will be researching hail formation and growth using dual-pol radar in my analysis.

Previously, I conducted research with Professor Rauber (University of Illinois) to help improve decision-support forecasting for weather-vulnerable facilities.
