- Basic Information -

Time in Larsen Lab: 2019-2020
Worked on a variety of projects including using our Atomic Force Microscope to help characterize the surface roughness of treated Micas for ice nucleation studies, studied the relationships between freezing experiments and the resulting estimates of ice nucleation rate and uncertainties, and did some work on analyzing disdrometric data.
