Sustainability Leadership Fellow Cohort: 2022-2023
Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Atmospheric Science
Research Summary: I study climate variability and predictability to understand how particular atmospheric and oceanic conditions in the tropical Indian and Pacific Oceans impact regional weather patterns and extreme events in the United States on subseasonal (two week to two month) time scales. Using a combination of climate models and data science techniques, I explore sources of predictability within our climate system that provide forecasts of opportunity– climate states that result in higher prediction skill– which ultimately lead to more confident climate forecasts.
