Nick Falk


I grew up in Chatsworth, a neighborhood of Los Angeles. I attended UC Davis for my undergraduate where I graduated with degrees in Atmospheric Science and Mathematics. While at Davis, I was involved in research with Ian Faloona, Matthew Igel, and Adele Igel. With Ian, I looked at the nocturnal low level jet in California's Central Valley and got experience taking measurements from aircraft. With Matt and Adele, I analyzed four different supercell simulations in RAMS with differing microphysics. My current research is part of CAMP2Ex where I will compare in-situ data with data from CloudSat. Outside of work and classes, I like to run, hike, practice piano, play strategy games, and read about history.
