Kyle Rocha-Brownell

Kyle is a senior undergraduate double majoring in physics and computer science, and minoring in mathematics. He joined the Atmospheric Lidar Research group in May of 2016 and has participated in both the 2016 and 2017 Physics Summer Research Institutes (PSRI).

Kyle's research involves applying the Typhoon motion estimation software to output from large eddy simulations produced by Dr. David Richter at the University of Notre Dame. The long-term goal of the research is to determine how well Typhoon is likely to perform in primarily shear-driven flows over the ocean. Shorter term objectives involve evaluating the performance under different flow scenerios.

In addition to keeping an exemplar log of his work during the Summer of 2016, Kyle has given three presentations at international conferences, including the 28th International Laser Radar Conference (ILRC) in Bucharest, Romania in June of 2017.
