I am broadly interested in how large-scale atmospheric dynamics influence regional climate, with an eye to climate change and policy applications. My dissertation research, advised by Dr. Gabriel Vecchi, examines formation of deserts, precipitation variability, and impacts of orography on climate. I also research temporal structure and risk of heat waves with Prof. Michael Oppenheimer through a PEI-STEP fellowship in joint with Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School.
