October 11th-13th: Attended the IODP workshop titled “Drilling into Young Oceanic Crust for Subseafloor Observations at Axial Seamount” at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Palisades, New York.
August 11th: Presented “Using NASA Earth Observations to Monitor Exceptional Air Pollution Events in Texas” as a poster at South East Regional Node Closeout at The Collider, Asheville, NC. (NASA DEVELOP National Program).
August 4th: Presented “Using NASA Earth Observations to Monitor Exceptional Air Pollution Events in Texas” as a poster at Annual Earth Science Application Showcase (AESAS), NASA Headquarters, Washington D.C. (NASA DEVELOP National Program).
June 5th – August 11th 2017: Worked as an Independent Research Consultant for the NASA DEVELOP National Program, Wise County, VA. I worked as part of a four-member team on the Texas Health and Air Quality project. We studied exceptional air pollution events in the cities of Texas and looked at the possible natural events that cause them. We used a combination of NASA Earth Observations and air parcel trajectory modeling to achieve this. More here: https://earthzine.org/2017/08/11/houston-we-have-pollution/
