Carley Eschliman is an editorial assistant at the Cornell Lab for the summer of 2018. She is currently pursuing majors in both Atmospheric Science and Communication in the Cornell College of Agriculture and Life Science. Originally hailing from the great state of Kansas, Carley has been interested in weather since she first caught a glimpse of a tornado in her early childhood. She hopes that her studies at Cornell will equip her with skills to better bridge the communication gap between climate scientists and the general public. Through her work at the Cornell Lab, she wishes to encourage a closer partnership between birders and meteorologists, showing each group that there is a lot still left to learn about what is going on in the troposphere.
