Associate Scientist with Tenure

I am a climate scientist, with a broad range of research and teaching interests in oceanic and atmospheric processes and their interactions relating to climate. My focus has been particularly on “regional-scale” climate dynamics and small-scale and multi-scale scale Earth-System interactions across the atmosphere, ocean, land, and ice. Regional climate studies inherently cross many boundaries across academic disciplines with far-reaching socio-economic implications, and this cross-disciplinary nature of the problem and the practical importance to human society are what has fascinated me about this research topic. The overall goal of my research is to better understand the climate processes and their variability and changes at regional to local scales and to deliver useful and usable predictions and projections to adapt to and mitigate climate change impacts.
