During his undergraduate career at Purdue, he performed research with Dr. Phillip Smith, and his honors thesis focused on the relationship of isobarically-calculated potential vorticity (PV) and absolute vorticity (AV) to an explosively-deepening extratropical cyclone. His thesis was awarded first place in the American Meteorological Society's MacElwane Award competition, and presented it with Dr. Smith at the First International Winter Storm Symposium (Source: EAS Undergraduate Research).
