I am a Stanback Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental Science and Engineering at the California Institute of Technology. My research interests are in climate dynamics, with a focus on how atmospheric feedbacks associated with clouds, water vapor, and sea ice affect the large-scale circulation and spatial patterns of climate change. In 2013, I completed my PhD in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Washington. I hold a BS in Geological Sciences from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2002) and an MS in Geological Sciences from the University of Colorado, Boulder (2005).
