Area of Interest: Atmospheric fluid dynamics, numerical modelling, fire weather/climate interactions
Academic Degree(s): Master of Science, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, 2014, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada;
Bachelor of Science with Honours Atmospheric Sciences, 2012, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Ginny earned her BSc degree with honors in Atmospheric Sciences in 2012 and MSc degree in Earth and Atmospheric Science in 2015, both at the University of Alberta. Her MSc research focused on improving numerical weather prediction in the atmospheric boundary layer and testing an alternative scheme for eddy viscosity. She enjoys studying and research related to atmospheric fluid dynamics, mathematics, and numerical modeling.
Ginny is also interested in the interactions between fire and weather. She has been working on this topic as a research assistant under the supervision of Dr. Mike Flannigan since 2012, and her current research focus is on the relationship between fire and weather / climate in the past and future.
