Research Interests

Broadly speaking, my research interest is climate dynamics. I am interested in large-scale physical mechanisms which alter the climate, as well as physical feedbacks which amplify or damp climate change. The tool that I use to study these forcing mechanisms and feedbacks is climate modeling. Different scientific questions require different types of model. Thus, in exploring different physical aspects of the climate system, I utilize different types of climate models.

Current Research Projects

I currently am focused on two research projects:

Past research projects

I have done work on a couple of other projects in the past. While I am still interested in these topics, I have not been involved with them recently. Maybe someday when I magically have more time...
