I am an Associate Research Scientist at NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (Program in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, Princeton University and NOAA/Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory) in Princeton, NJ, USA  

I am generally interested in climate dynamics, monsoons and hydro-climate change. 

Before coming to Princeton, I was a NOAA C&GC
 postdoctoral fellow (2015-2016) at the California Institute of Technology in  Pasadena, California,  working in the research group of  Simona Bordoni and, before, affiliated with the Meteorological Institut, University of Hamburg  (2011-2014).

In 2011 I completed my PhD in Meteorology from the University of Reading, UK, where I studied the entropy budget of the climate system  and the Maximum Entropy Production conjecture through GCMs and idealized models (thesis.pdf), supervised by  Jonathan Gregory and co-supervised by Maarten Ambaum and Remi Tailleux. 

I was trained as physicist at the University of Naples "Federico II", Department of Physics, where I obtained a B.Sc. in Physics in 2004 and a M.Sc. in Theoretical Physics in 2007.
