I've been employeed at the Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies since receiving my degree in meteorology from Florida State University in September 2000. I currently serve as the Assistant State Climatologist of Florida. My work at COAPS and the Florida Climate Center involves processing data and producing derived data products for both the climate center and the Southeast Climate Consortium. I'm also an outreach educator for COAPS and the state coordinator of the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow (CoCoRaHS) Network.

Dr. James J. O'Brien, the Robert O. Lawton Professor of Meteorology and Oceanography, founded COAPS. He is internationally known for mentoring young scientists and under his guidance 42 students have completed their Ph. D. degree and over 80 students have completed their M.S. degree. He also has supervised more than 25 post-doctoral assistants. Dr. O'Brien's early emphasis was in ocean modeling which led to new breakthroughs in understanding coastal upwelling, El Niño, La Niña, and hurricane effects on the ocean. His most recent research interest is on the impact of climate variability on our everyday life. Dr. O'Brien retired in December 2006 and Dr. Eric Chassignet, from the University of Miami, is now the new COAPS director.

I began in my position in the Florida Climate Center in June 2016. My work involves supporting the full range of operations of the Center, including fulfilling requests for climate data and information, performing research on applied climate topics pertinent to Florida and the surrounding region, and providing climate outreach to Florida citizens. I also serve as a state coordinator for the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow (CoCoRaHS) Network, which is a high-density precipitation-observation network that has volunteer citizen observers hailing from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, Canada, and Bermuda.
