Christine Neumaier


Biosketch

I grew up in Sacramento, California and graduated with my bachelor's degree from the University of Washington in Atmospheric Sciences with a minor in Applied Mathematics. As an undergraduate, I worked on a project investigating anthropogenic enhancements to lightning under the advisorship of Dr. Joel Thornton. I also did an internship at Pacific Northwest National Labratory where I investigated cloud and aerosol data from the Cloud, Aerosol, and Complex Terrain Interactions (CACTI) field campaign in Argentina. I just joined the van den Heever group as a MS student doing research as part of the upcoming BACS field campaign. In my free time, I enjoy biking, running, board games, and photography.
