UTIG posted a student profile about me!

Jessica Hall at the UT Institute for Geophysics (UTIG) interviewed me about my research work, a recent award and some future plans. You can find a summary on my UTIG student profile (link).

Last November I was awarded an Endowed Presidential Scholarship, thanks to my awesome advisor Jack Holt who recommended me. For additional information on what I do, you may find my recently published paper on the lowermost NPLD evolution of interest.
