EPP/MSI participation

  • Cooperative Science Centers

    • NOAA Center for Atmospheric Sciences (NCAS) (2005)

    • NOAA Cooperative Remote Sensing Science and Technology Center (CREST) (2002)


  • M.S. Atmospheric Sciences from Howard University, supported by NCAS.
  • M.A. Geology from City University of New York, CUNY supported by CREST.
  • B.S. Environmental Science from Medgar Evers College, CUNY.

The EPP/MSI program was my first introduction to NOAA, and the support it provided during my early academic career was monumental. I came away with a rich sense of pride, purpose, and lifelong connections that continue to help me serve the agency and the nation.
