Student Bio: 

April is a PhD candidate in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, advised by Prof. Tristan L’Ecuyer. She joined the Atmospheric Energetics and Climate Research Group in 2014 to exploiting the wealth of information provided by satellite CloudSat and CALIPSO to seek a better understanding of cloud radiative roles in the atmospheric energy budget. Her research interests include regime-dependent characteristics of atmospheric heating in regional models and CloudSat/CALIPSO observations. In her free time, she enjoys Zumba, Marathon, drawing and traveling.
