I am currently in my fourth year of the Doctorate program in Geography, and received my Master's at Northern Illinois University. My research interests include atmospheric hazards impacting populated areas, and severe weather vulnerability. My dissertation focuses on severe weather vulnerabilities resulting from daily migration patterns found in a major U.S. city.
