MS Student

I am a first year MS student in the Environmental Science Graduate Program. Currently, I study how variable atmospheric conditions influence species migration by simulating an ocean, land, and atmosphere model.  Specifically, under the speculation that birds are navigated by their olfactory system, I am modeling how smells are dispersed in the atmosphere while linking this to physical samples of air representative of the odor concentrations in the areas of interest.
