I am a software engineer/programmer in the Community Climate System Model Software Engineering Group (CSEG) of the National Center for Atmospheric Research's Climate and Global Dynamics Division. My work is as the Land Model Working Group Liason for Software Engineering working on the active land model as well as needed work for the active atmospheric model. I've also worked as the Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF) liaison to the Community Climate System Model (CCSM). I am also a member of the Software Engineering Assembly (SEA) and active in the "Best Practices Committee". The SEA Best Practices Recommendations are here.

Curriculum vitae

CCSM is a multi-executable MPMD model that has a global atmosphere model (Community Atmosphere Model -- CAM), land surface model (Community Land Model -- CLM), sea-ice model (Community Sea-Ice Model -- CSIM), a full depth ocean model (Parallel Ocean Program -- POP), and a flux coupler (CPL6) model to link surface fluxes between each model. The atmosphere model models from surface to 1mbar, running at horizontal resolutions from about 0.5 to 10 degrees. The sea-ice and ocean models runs at a horizontal resolution of 1 to 3 degrees. Each model communicates with the other via distributed memory tasking provided by MPI, as well as running SPMD for it's own distributed memory parallel processing. Some models also use OpenMP to provide shared-memory parallelism. Each basic model component (land, atmosphere, sea-ice or ocean) can be swapped out for either an active model component, data model component or a dead-model component (passing constant analytic data for testing purposes).

My Thesis

I completed a Master of Science Degree in Physics from Utah State University in the spring of 1999. The title of my thesis was:


I did analysis on 15 year simulations with a regional climate model at 50km resolution over the U.S., as well as some experiments with one-way nesting with a 10km simulation over northern Utah.
