I am currently a PhD student in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington, in Seattle, WA, USA.

My research focuses on:

    • Climate sensitivity

    • Radiative feedbacks

    • Climate dynamics

My PhD thesis focuses on how spatial patterns of surface warming influence global radiative response (radiative feedbacks) in the atmosphere and how climate sensitivity estimates are affected by such pattern effects, using Global Climate Models (GCMs).

From 2021 Dec, I will be starting my new position as a NOAA Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellow at Columbia University/Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. My proposed future work will continue to investigate the underlying causes of the observed tropical Pacific sea-surface temperature trend pattern.
