Research overview

My research addresses fundamental questions in atmospheric and climate dynamics, land-climate interactions, the water cycle, and past & future climate change. Recently I have been working to understand the role of atmospheric circulations in climate sensitivity, the dynamics of the intertropical convergence zone, and why continents and oceans respond very differently to climate change. In my research I use a range of tools including theory, computational models of varying degree of complexity, and Earth-system observations.
