Dr. Timothy A. Myers

Welcome! I'm a Postdoctoral researcher in climate and atmospheric science at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. My advisor is Mark Zelinka.

Previously, I was a postdoc in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of California, Los Angeles, advised by Roberto Mechoso. Before then, I was a graduate student advised by Joel Norris at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

I study how and why climate changes in response to increasing greenhouse gases as well as naturally. The response of global cloud patterns to human-induced climate change is a leading source of uncertainty in projections of global warming. In my research, I aim to better understand the cloud processes that are salient to predictions of climate variability and change using a combination of observations, advanced statistical techniques, theory, and climate models.
