I hold a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Washington, where I was privileged to be advised by Prof. Gerard Roe. My research interests fall broadly under the category of climate dynamics. Starting in Autumn 2013, I will be a postdoctoral research fellow at Caltech.
In my previous career as a geophysicist, I studied mountain-belt dynamics and seismic hazard in the Himalaya. I hold a BS from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2002) and an MS from the University of Colorado in Boulder (2005), and I have worked as a geodetic engineer in research support services.
