Assistant Professor of Climate Science at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

I am interested in a broad range of climate questions, with a general focus on understanding the basic physics of the climate system. A common theme in my work is an emphasis on using theory and idealized models to develop intuition, which is then validated against observations and comprehensive climate models. Recent topics of interest include climate sensitivity, temperature variability, heat stress, monsoons and solar geoengineering.

Outside of my research, I enjoy working on projects at the intersection of art and climate science. This includes taking part in an Exchange with artist Michael Wang for Art in America, working on the Emerald Tutu project and collaborating with the sl Collective architecture firm.
