Graduate Students

Alex Schaefer, Started in Fall 2015 as an INES PhD student. Alex graduated with a Masters degree in Atmospheric Sciences from South Dakota School of Mines and Technology working on plume dynamics relative to a single fire. He then expanded his view from one fire to millions of fires and is now working hard on multidisciplinary hypothesis testing using global fire modeling methods.

Stephanie Edwards. Started in Spring 2016 as a Masters in Earth Sciences student. Stephanie graduated with a Meteorology BSc from NC State, and is currently working on large-scale lightning detection using National Lightning Detection Network data and satellite microwave remote sensing data from SSM/I. She is storm-chasing in the world lightning data and finding some pretty interesting results about the Southeast USA!
