EPP/MSI participation


  • Ph.D. Atmospheric Science from Howard University, supported by NCAS.
  • M.S. Meteorology from Pennsylvania State University.
  • B.S. Physics from North Carolina A&T State University, supported by the Undergraduate Scholarship Program.

In the Summers of 2001-02, the EPP/MSI Undergraduate Scholarship Program exposed me to climate and seasonal forecasting at NOAA. And it provided me with mentors and lasting professional relationships within the atmospheric science field.
