I am an associate professor from the Department of Geography, Environment, and Tourism at Western Michigan University. My research interest is focused on Tropical Cyclones and Climate Change, Hydro-climatology, Risk Analysis and Community Resilience from Natural Disasters, and Machine Learning.  Before WMU, I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering at The Johns Hopkins University. I got my PhD in Geography from Texas A&M University in 2013.
