computation, hurricanes, climate change resilience, probability and statistics
BioI'm a graduate student researching how to improve hurricane forecasts. I'm passionate about computer programming, risk analysis, fluid dynamics, and climate change. I have had some wonderful mentoring opportunities in the past and am excited to join Polygence as a mentor. For fun, I like to watch TV, bake, and play board games.
Data Visualization for Hurricane Trends
There is a lot of interest in estimating how hurricanes are going to change in the future, and what trends have been like in the past. This project would involve reading some of the current research on hurricane trends and creating simple, legible visuals or infographics to help make that information more accessible to the general public.
Climate Change Risk Assessment for a City or Town
Most research on climate change tends to draw conclusions about changes expected for a large region, but planning and resiliency typically occurs at a much more local level. This project would consider the risks for a particular area and consider solutions that similar regions are adopting.
