Bio: 

My Master's research involves studying the snowfall retrievals from NASA's CloudSat and GPM satellites. Having launched in February 2014, GPM initially utilized CloudSat's snowfall database, matching 2-meter temperatures and total precipitable water collected by the GMI (GPM Microwave Imager) to a snowfall rate. I am now comparing the retrievals of CloudSat, GPM using CloudSat's database, and GPM using its own constructed database. I am also using ERA-Interim, a reanalysis dataset, to validate all of the snowfall retrievals.  In addition to my Master's research, I am comparing calculated energy transports from the CMIP5 ensemble the NASA Energy and Water Cycle Study (NEWS) at the poles. I also research the boundary layer using automatic weather stations in Antarctica as a project with the Antarctic Meteorological Research Center (AMRC) here at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
