Academic Career

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 2015 with a B.S. in Biology and Environmental Studies with a certificate in Global Health. While at Wisconsin, I spent 2 years conducting undergraduate research with Dr. Tracey Holloway and Dr. Brad Pierce (NOAA). I used aircraft data from the Deriving Information on Surface conditions from Column and Vertically Resolved Observations Relevant to Air Quality (DISCOVER-AQ) campaign in the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. area in June/July 2011 to study ozone production.

At Maryland, I am involved in the Regional Atmospheric Measurement Modeling and Prediction Program (RAMMPP), which collects meteorological, trace gas, and aerosol observations from a Cessna 402B in the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. region. I also use aircraft observations from a campaign in Spring 2016 called Air Chemistry Research in Asia (ARIAs) to study air pollution in the North China Plain.
