Welcome to my project page! Currently, I'm installing and running the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model on the Physics Department server for my senior project. My interest in the WRF model stems from its wide applicability to various atmospheric phenomena in a range of spatial scales. More specifically, I am intrigued by its possibility to assess and predict future climate change induced forcings.
