Brenda Philips, an AMS Member, is an Associate Director at the Center for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere, in Amherst, Massachusetts. CASA, an NSF Engineering Research Center headquartered at the University of Massachusetts, is creating innovative X-band weather radar systems that provide high-resolution, boundary layer observations. Ms. Philips leads the End User Integration research thrust, a multidisciplinary group that interacts with users of weather data—such as the National Weather Service, emergency managers, academic researchers, the media, and the public—studying social, policy, behavioral and technical interface issues around the use of CASA systems in weather impacted decision making. Recently, Ms. Philips has been co-leading CASA's effort to establish a urban test bed in the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex with local public and private stakeholders. She has an MBA degree from Yale University and is working toward a PhD degree in resource economics from the University of Massachusetts, focusing on valuing weather. She considers herself an honorary weather weenie based on all the time she has spent with forecasters and emergency managers learning about their weather data needs.
