I am a postdoctoral fellow at the International Pacific Research Center at the University of Hawaii, working with Axel Timmermann.. I started working here at the IPRC in January 2012: before that, I did my PhD at the University of Colorado at Boulder, in the Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences (ATOC) department. I worked in Baylor Fox-Kemper's research group, and was supported by the NASA Earth & Space Science Fellowship (NESSF) and the CIRES Innovative Research Program (IRP). My thesis is available in PDF format here.
In general, my research goals relate to understanding the impact of climate change on large-scale climate variability, and in turn how that variability affects natural resources. During my PhD work I focused on the response of the El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) to climate change; now as a postdoc, I am looking at the dynamics associated with droughts in the Southwestern United States.
Information on my current research projects, presentations, and publications are available in these pages. Also please feel free to contact me.
