People of IARC
What do you do?
My role is climate translator. I work with ACCAP to span the bridge between climate modeling and communities. An ACCAP mission is to understand user needs, I anticipate helping our team work in that domain. For example, I am contributing to the ACCAP and IARC social media presence since that is a primary mechanism for communications across Alaska.

What are you currently working on?
We are in discussion with radio stations around the state to provide short, region specific climate and weather segments. That tailored information is a very valuable service that the university can provide to Alaska communities.
Come talk to you about?
I am available to discuss the ins and outs of weather and climate instrumentation. Having worked for NOAA for 30 years I can also provide feedback on what NOAA is really looking for in proposals.
