I am a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the California Institute of Technology. My primary research is in climate dynamics, including past, present, future, and extrasolar climates. Recent work has focused on atmospheric feedbacks and climate sensitivity, coupling between clouds and circulations, and the role of the ocean in setting the timescales and geographic patterns of climate change and variability. Starting in Summer 2016, I will be an Assistant Professor of Earth & Planetary Sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Prospective graduate students and postdocs in atmospheric and climate dynamics are encouraged to contact me. More information about the Earth & Planetary Sciences program at UC Santa Cruz can be found at the graduate studies webpage.
