Graduate Student Wins Second Place for Oral Presentation
“For me, conferences are a great way to see my peers from other universities and institutions that I don’t get to see on a regular basis, and they are a great way to share ideas that spawns new research and improves current research,” Reif said.
“I presented some of the work I’ve been doing using data from a field campaign that I participated in 4 years ago. I was looking at how strong the vertical velocity is at the leading edge of cold pools, or outflow boundaries, from thunderstorms. Since, I was directly involved in the data collection, the research was a bit more personal to me because I remember what it took to collect the data.”
“It was nice to be recognized. All of the students had excellent presentations, so being recognized by the conference committee felt pretty nice,” Reif said.
