I am a meteorologist at Thomson Reuters in Chicago IL. I recently graduated from the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at SUNY Albany. I received my B.S. in Meteorology from Northern Illinois University and received my M.S. in Atmospheric Science in the summer of 2014. I focused my thesis research with my advisor Dr. Lance Bosart primarily on changes and trends in Arctic climate and how these affect midlatitude circulation patterns. Specific research topics included: sea-ice loss, frequency/intensity of Arctic cylones, fall Eurasian snowcover and influences, case study of the August 2012 intense Arctic cyclone, etc. Proficient in NCAR Command Language, which is used for all graphics contained within my website. Currently forecast for agricultural and energy purposes, will try and maintain snowcover data as often as possible.
