I am a Lead Research Scientist on the Climate Modeling team at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence. My research interests include atmospheric dynamics, climate change, climate modeling and machine learning. Broadly speaking, I am motivated by understanding processes that affect the variability of the atmosphere from sub-seasonal to centennial timescales. These processes include stratosphere-troposphere coupling, tropical-extratropical teleconnections, and the interaction between cloud radiative effects and the atmospheric circulation. I use observational data, idealized modelling experiments and analysis of comprehensive climate models as tools for my research. I am actively working to improve weather and climate prediction using machine learning.

I am an Associate Editor at the Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems focused on handling manuscripts related to the use of machine learning in Earth system modeling. We welcome your submissions!
