    I am currently a first year master’s student of the Atmospheric Science department at Hampton University. I graduated from Millersville University with a bachelor’s degree in meteorology and a minor in mathematics in 2017.

    My research interests consist of comparing data from Hampton’s new direct broadcast system to actual radiosonde data. I am doing this to see how accurate the satellite data from the DBS is and if it is able to be used operationally. I am currently working under Dr. William Smith.  Skew-T comparisons and cumulative statistical plots for the difference between the DBS data and actual radiosonde data, that we have created using MATLAB, can be found here:

    My past research project includes making a simulation for the CIPS instrument that measures parameters of polar mesospheric clouds. I completed this research for a summer internship I did at Hampton University in 2016. I presented this project at the 97th Annual AMS Meeting.

    Project: Simulating the CIPS Instrument

    This project was completed during the summer internship at Hampton University in 2016.  This is an abstract that I used for the poster presentation at the 97th AMS Annual Meeting: We present preliminary results of simulating the view of the Cloud Imaging and Particle Size (CIPS) instrument onboard the Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere […]
