Ph.D. Candidate

School of Meteorology


I obtained my bachelor’s degree in meteorology from San Jose State University in San Jose, CA. Students in the program were well-informed about research opportunities, which ultimately led me to interning at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) during 2016 and 2017. In 2018, I received my master’s in atmospheric sciences from Howard University in Washington, D.C., during which time I was able to intern at the National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) in Norman, OK. Currently, I reside in that very location as a Ph.D. student at the University of Oklahoma where I research the influence of wind farms on boundary layer processes.
