Experience Energy and Agricultural Meteorology Intern
Assisted the three-member weather department team in Chicago, IL conducting global energy
weather forecasting for Chesapeake Energy and aided the consulting business tailored to
agribusiness firms. As an intern, responsible for:
Weather/Climate Interface Research: Conducted research on current and past global
circulation and teleconnection patterns to promote increased forecasting skill for near-term
to long-term weather prediction
Assist in Daily Operations: Helped write daily weather wires to be distributed to
agribusiness firms and a twice-weekly energy weather wire. Topics included
temperature/precipitation forecast summaries, past weather write-ups, hazardous weather
outlooks, extreme weather and its impact on agriculture or energy, tropical outlooks, and a
special historical perspective on early frost/freeze events issued to agribusiness clients
Research Specialist: In collaboration with State University of New York (SUNY) Albany,
conducted research relevant to Chesapeake Energy and the University. Topics included:
Impact on global circulations due to loss of sea-ice, changes of worldwide snowcover
extent and its use as a predictor, and connections between Arctic and Tropics
Quality Control: Assisted weather department team by running forecast verifications and
identifying biases in previous forecasts to improve current forecasting skill

Climate Change, and Introduction to Environmental Science
Researcher: Perform research geared towards Masters Thesis, expected August 2014.
Work includes looking at frequency/intensity of Arctic cyclones, changes in climate
variables within Arctic (precipitable water, geopotential heights, jet stream strength, etc.),
October Eurasian snowcover extent as a wintertime predictor, and blocking regimes in

WGN-TV Jan-May 2011
Weather Production Intern
Weather Assistant: Aided Tom Skilling in his daily on-air weather forecasts and
newspaper publications. Responsibilities included: Collecting statistics on weather
warnings/advisories, gaining a historical perspective of current weather forecasts,
