I am a second year graduate student at the University of Oklahoma. My masters research is investigating the dynamics of error growth in ECMWF medium range forecasts. On the side, I am researching the QBO, and have developed a Multivariate QBO Index (MQI) that is a much better representation of the state of the stratosphere. The MQI is a more useful tool for seasonal forecasting.
I have a wide range of experience, including microscale up to planetary scale research, numerical modeling to forecasting for a client. I have a very strong interest in intraseasonal forecasting, and all my independent research is geared toward advancing my skill in long range prediction.
