About Me

Imagine, Create, Make a difference

I am a Professor at the Department of Atmospheric Science, Colorado State University. Prior to joining CSU, she was an Associate Professor at the Department of Meteorology, University of Reading, United Kingdom, a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland–Baltimore County, and an Associated Scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

My Expertise

I have extensive experience in remote sensing and radiative transfer. I have been working on retrievals for cloud, precipitation, and aerosols; aerosol-cloud-precipitation interactions; and machine learning applications in cloud processes and radiative transfer.

I was awarded the David and Lucille Atlas Remote Sensing Prize "for outstanding contributions boosting the development of multi-instrument remote sensing methodologies with broad applications to clouds and their effect on climate". This prize is given biennially by AMS in recognition of advances in the science and technology of remote sensing and its application to knowledge of the earth, oceans, and atmosphere.

My Service

I am currently serving as the Chair of the Cloud and Precipitation Measurements and Science Group for the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility, co-Chair of DOE ASR Warm Boundary Layer Processes Working Group, and a member of NASA Earth Science Advisory Committee, the International Radiation Commission, and the Hyperspectral Imaging and Sounding of the Environment Program Committee. In the past, I have served as the Chair of the AMS Atmospheric Radiation Committee.
