My research focuses on decadal climate variability, the role of the ocean in the climate of the Tropics, and impacts of the ocean's physical state on ecosystems.
Before joining UC Berkeley, I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University (advised by Profs. Mark A. Cane and Richard Seager), a M.Sc. in Earth Physics from the Australian National University (advised by Prof. Andy Hogg), and a B.Sc. in Physics from the University of Madras.
