Other Activities

In addition to my research activities, I'm involved in education and service.

Collaboration between different organizations is a natural occurrence at the National Weather Center. I truly enjoy the variety of ways in which I get to interact with fellow engineers and meteorologists.

Learning opportunities are also abundant. I regularly attend the Advanced Radar Research Center seminar series where graduate students, faculty, and visitors present the latest on their research projects.

One particular group that relies on collaboration and continuing learning is the Radar Operations Center Data Quality Team (DQ Team). I am currently an active member of this interdisciplinary team of meteorologists and engineers. The DQ Team has members from the ROC’s Applications, Engineering, and Operations branches, the Weather Decision Training Branch, NSSL, and OU. The group deals with general data quality issues on the NEXRAD network and meets weekly at the National Weather Center.

Here is a summary of extracurricular activities that I'm currently involved in:
