From a young age I've been fascinated by the weather and climate that surrounds us. I majored in physics as an undergraduate and realized how fundamental physics is to our understanding of earth. Graduate school has been a fantastic opportunity for me to combine my interest in our atmosphere with my passion for using math and physics to better understand the world.
Having a basic understanding of climate change is becoming increasingly important as climate is talked about more often in popular media. I hope to help people become more informed about the state of climate science to help them better understand climate news when they see it.
I am helping to develop the Actionable Community-Oriented Research eNgagement (ACORN) program with fellow graduate students and the Program on Climate Change to facilitate project-based collaboration between UW graduate students and community organizations. We are currently looking to develop more partnerships to help meet community priorities related to climate change—please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested!
