Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at MIT, working with Prof. Tim Cronin. Previously I was in the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences program at Princeton, where I completed my PhD with Prof. Isaac Held.
The main goal of my research is to improve our understanding of the atmosphere by connecting results from idealized models to the behavior of comprehensive climate models and to observations. I am also interested in climate science more generally, including the problem of climate sensitivity, climate model development and evaluation, ocean heat uptake and climate variability on all time-scales.
