I am a PhD student at the University of Florida in the Environmental Engineering Sciences department working under Dr. Barron Henderson. I have a M.S. degree in Meteorology from Florida State University and a B.A. degrees in Earth and Planetary Sciences degree from Johns Hopkins University. My research interests include air quality and climate modeling in South America specifically to study effects for the El Nino Southern Oscillation on air quality both locally and on a large scale. I have experience running with WRF, CMAQ and GEOS-Chem for regulatory purposes in Bogota, Colombia and have helped develop regional air quality forecasts for Florida.
