I am a Research Scientist within the
Department of Atmospheric Sciences/ College of the
Environment / University
of Washington, working within Prof. Greg
Hakim's group on data assimilation projects related to the production of climate reanalyses
and for improved initialization of predictions spanning a wide range of scales (climatic to mesoscale).
- Data assimilation
- Weather & climate predictions
- Boundary-layer meteorology
- Fog physics, numerical modelling & prediction
- Remote sensing of the lower atmosphere & ocean surface
Last Millennium Climate Reanalysis project: climate reconstructions of the last 1000 yrs from the assimilation of multi-proxy data.
Deep Times Data Assimilation project: climate reconstructions of the Last Glacial Maximum to the Late Holocene from the assimilation of marine sediment proxy data.
Development of coupled atmosphere-ocean data assimilation capabilities for improved initialization of near-term (interannual to multi-decadal) climate predictions.
Variance-based sensitivity analysis of numerical model parameters on NWP.
Upgrading/maintaining the UW-WRF/DART real-time mesoscale ensemble data assimilation and prediction system.
