More about me: I was born in Colorado but grew up in a suburb of Seattle, Washington. I love reading; here is a list of my favorite books. I also enjoy poetry and am interested in recommendations. Places I know people from include the University of Chicago, the University of Colorado, my graduate studies at UCLA, and my undergraduate days at Stanford University. I've met a number of friends through the different organizations I've been a member of; InterVarsity Christian Fellowship has been one of the most significant to me.
Collaborators: Besides working with colleagues at UWB and North Park, I have also collaborated with: Jianbo Gao (Guangxi University, China), David Neelin (Climate Systems Interactions group, UCLA), Ray Pierrehumbert (Climate Systems Center, University of Chicago), and Richard Rood (University of Michigan, Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Space Sciences). A more complete list of collaborators, that includes students who were part of the Climate Research Group at North Park and all UWB CSS capstone projects I served as an advisor for, is here.
