I am a Ph.D student at the University of Maryland studying atmospheric and oceanic science. I was born and raised in San Diego County, CA. I received a BA in Economics in 2007 from California State University San Marcos and an MS in Applied Mathematics from San Diego State University in 2012. My research interests are focused on the coupling of the Earth’s climate with turbulent and convective processes.
