Time in Larsen Lab: 2012-2016
Basic Project Description: Studied an extremely wide range of topics. Worked on developing a computational pipeline for processing laser precipitation monitor data, data-acquisition and processing for a site-specific Z-R relationship, scaling relationships in rain data, competing definitions of rain event, helped to construct and maintain the Dixie disdrometer array, computational studies of radiative transmission through correlated random media, and worked on a variety of other tasks over the years.

- Post-Graduation Activities and Current Status -

Josh gave me the following text to include here:

"I'm a system's progremmer at MUSC, which means that they couldn't find anything better to call a technician who knows some code and some math, but not enough to get a Ph.D. in either. I take classes for programming in the hopes that I'll learn enough to program complex hardware and software systems without doing a bad job of it. For this, the physics degree is more useful than people might guess.

I'm married, and my wife and I have two dogs. One is a good listener when we're home but not when we're away, and the other is the opposite. Both are very big couch potatoes, and firmly believe that the couch is their right.

I have also taken up smoking meat, which is rewarding for my taste buds but not my waist."
