Research Interests: My research focuses on the application of machine learning tools (e.g. neural networks) and numerical modeling systems (e.g. CESM) to answer pressing questions in the domains of climate and extremes. Examples of problems that we are tackling include extending Earth system prediction, understanding genesis of extremes, and uncovering multi-scale patterns in the climate system. Our research also strives to incorporate open-source software and data, accessible communication, and multi-discipline collaboration.
