Please visit my current website:

I am now a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Victoria, working with John Fyfe at the Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis (CCCma) in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. I graduated from the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at UW in August 2013, and was jointly advised by David Battisti and Cecilia Bitz.
My research interests include:
  • climate dynamics, variability and change
  • understanding the effect of geoengineering on climate (dissertation pdf upon request)
  • global climate modeling
  • sea ice and polar climate
See our research featured as an NSF Discovery here.
