Outside of research and work, he enjoys following the Seattle Mariners, playing baseball, and enjoys outside activities.

Vice President: Bryce Williams

Bryce Bryce is a second-year graduate student working with Dr. Udaysankar Nair, studying the spatial and geographical distribution of dust devils on the surface of Mars and relating known dust devil behavior on Earth to the Martian surface. Bryce was born in central Florida but lived in Knoxville, Tennessee for most of his childhood. He graduated with honors from Mississippi State University in May 2013 with a degree in meteorology. In his four years at Mississippi State, Bryce held leadership positions in the Baptist Student Union and his local church, and he was heavily involved in the student AMS chapter, helping organize events like the annual Southeast Severe Storms Symposium. Outside of school, Bryce enjoys being outdoors, especially running, biking, or hiking.

Treasurer: Tyler Castillo

Tyler Tyler is a second-year graduate student working under Dr. Mecikalski, studying the dynamics of the Madden-Julian Oscillation by assimilating winds, collected by several radars during the DYNAMO field campaign, into WRF and comparing the output to low-resolution CYGNSS data. He received his undergraduate degree in meteorology from Mississippi State University where he was also a member of the East Mississippi Chapter of the NWA/AMS. Outside of school, Tyler enjoys cycling and playing hockey, as well as closely following the Philadelphia Flyers and Jacksonville Jaguars.

 

Secretary: Camille Woods

Camille Camille Woods is a second year graduate student pursuing a Master of Science in Atmospheric Science at UAH. Camille received her Bachelor of Science in Geosciences with a concentration in Geography from Tennessee Technological University. Aside from school, Camille enjoys reading/writing in her spare time as well as volunteering in various capacities. She particularly enjoys volunteer opportunities in which she's able to interact with children and other students! This is Camille's first year serving as an AMS chapter officer, and she's very excited and honored to serve in the role of secretary and to have the opportunity to work well alongside her fellow officers this school year!!! :)

 

Webmaster: Nicholas Elmer

Nicholas Nicholas is a second-year graduate student working with the NASA Short-term Prediction Research and Transition (SPoRT) Center to develop a limb correction algorithm for the improved interpretation of RGB composite imagery used by operational forecasters. Nicholas grew up near Indianapolis, Indiana, where he became an avid fan of the Indianapolis Colts and St. Louis Cardinals. He moved to St. Louis, Missouri, for college, where he graduated from Saint Louis University in December 2012 with a B.S. in meteorology and a minor in engineering mathematics. In his free time, Nicholas enjoys participating in a wide variety of sports, including running, biking, hiking, swimming, basketball, and softball.
