Brooke Odstrchel is a CIGLR Earth System Modeler working with Dmitry Beletsky (CIGLR), Dan Titze (NOAA GLERL) and Jesse Feyen (NOAA GLERL) on development, testing, and deployment of coupled integrated earth system models, in particular the development of a real-time, three-dimensional circulation and flood forecast modeling system in the Great Lakes. Currently, their team is focused on flood forecast modeling for Lake Ontario. Brooke is currently finishing up her Master’s degree in Climate, Space Sciences, and Engineering at the University of Michigan and looks forward to working with everyone at CIGLR and GLERL!
