Philosophy and Approach:

I am interested in how components of the earth system interact, emphasizing investigation between land, atmosphere, and atmospheric chemistry. Below are particular topics that I find most exciting.  I like attacking these topics by really digging into the process-level mechanisms responsible for producing observed relationships starting from first principles.  My goal is to ultimately improve predictability, make model parameterizations more “realistic”, and improve understanding of weather and climate. And perhaps the most important step is to then apply that understanding for broader use outside of academia.

Fun Side Projects I'm Currently Working On

  • Operational Forecast Model API using Flask and dabbling with flask-marshmallow

  • Interactive land-atmosphere coupling metrics graphical dashboard using Dash

  • Playing around with tensorflow to identify boundary layer height

  • Having some fun with Blender's python API
