Major: Atmospheric Science
Graduation Date: May 29, 2016
Not Counted Because: Transferred

At the time of my high school graduation, I was not prepared to move far away from home. I had always loved the science behind the weather, though, and knew I wanted to pursue that study in college. When I applied to Cornell’s atmospheric science program and was accepted, I knew this was an opportunity of a lifetime. I let go of my fear of leaving my small town in rural southern Virginia, and enrolled at Cornell, and I can confidently say that it was one of the best decisions of my life.

After graduation, I will be pursing a master’s in communication with a concentration in climate change at George Mason University, where I hope to engage in research with GMU’s Center for Climate Change Communication. My main goal is to find better methods in communicating climate science through broadcast meteorologists, as well as learning how to better communicate forecast uncertainty to decision makers and the general public.
