Me on UCLA commencement day 2011


(site last updated 2016 July 01)

I am a Ph.D. student in the Program in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at Princeton University, where I research tropical atmospheric circulations in present day and how they respond to imposed perturbations. Please see my Research page for more information. I am in my 5th year of study, am advised by Dr. Yi Ming, and will defend my thesis on August 2nd, 2016.

In September 2016, I will start a postdoctoral position working with Simona Bordoni of CalTech and Jonathan Mitchell of UCLA and Westmont College working on monsoon theories.

I am also interested in the Open Science and Free / Open Source Software movements, scientific programming using the Python language and Emacs Org-Mode, and the links between science and aesthetics/culture. Please see my Resources and Programming pages for more information.

Please contact me with any questions about my research or anything else you find on this site. Thanks!
