Summer 2010 WAS*IS Participant August 5-13, 2010 Boulder, Colorado
I am originally from Columbia, Missouri where I attended the University of Missouri and earned an undergraduate degree in Meteorology. Currently I live in Omaha, Nebraska where I am pursuing my Master's Degree at Creighton University. My graduate research concerns winter weather and specifically, convective snowfall. I am currently employed by NCAR as a temporary employee and assist the Societal Impacts Program. After gaining some experience in the social science aspect of meteorology this summer, I believe attending the WAS*IS summer conference will allow me to expand upon the knowledge base that I have already built and learn how to think more in terms of social science.
