We are hiring! Prof. Eric Maloney, Dr. Emily Riley Dellaripa, and I seek a post doctoral researcher to join our effort to diagnose tropical Pacific ocean-atmosphere coupled interactions linking the MJO and ENSO. You can find more information, including how to apply, at this link.

I study tropical ocean-atmosphere coupled processes:

  • how the transfer of energy, freshwater, and momentum across the air-sea interface affects the tropical upper ocean and lower atmosphere

  • how ocean-atmosphere communication affects the frequency, intensity, and organization of convection

  • how well these processes are represented in climate models.
