Postdoctoral Research Associate
I'm broadly interested in using a combination of numerical simulations,
modeling, and analytical mathematics to approach scientific problems.
In the past I've worked on particle
physics, mode-locking laser dynamics, and developing numerical
algorithms to determine the stability of optical structures.
My current research interest lies in the cloud-topped atmospheric
boundary layer and cloud feedbacks in global climate
models. The goals of my research are to understand underlying
physical mechanisms governing the response of boundary layer clouds
to climate change, and to better parameterize these processes in
Outside of my studies, I enjoy playing games and baking bread.
