I will be starting as an Assistant Professor in the Oceanography
Department and the International Pacific
Research Center (IPRC) at the University of Hawai'i at
Mānoa in January 2020. Both are part of the School of Ocean and
Earth Science and Technology (SOEST).
My Climate Dynamics research group will
be working on various aspects of internal climate
variability and forced changes in the past, present, and
future. These range from regional to global scales, from the
tropics to the poles. Our tools include statistical analysis
of observations and paleo records as well as hierarchies of
climate model simulations, ranging from very idealized
low-order systems to state-of-the-art high-resolution
coupled climate models and large ensemble projects.
Furthermore, we are interested in the practical application
of the insights gained from studying fundamental climate
dynamics to seasonal forecasting and society.
Please contact me regarding potential opportunities to
join the group as a student/postdoc.
From 2018-2019 I was an Assistant Project Leader at the IBS Center for Climate
Physics (ICCP) and Research Professor at Pusan National
University (PNU) in Busan, South Korea. At ICCP, I was
leading the group "Tropical climate dynamics: past,
present, future". During 2016-2018, I was a NOAA Climate & Global
Change postdoctoral fellow at the University of
Washington Atmospheric Sciences department, hosted by
Bitz. I received my PhD in Meteorology in
2015, working with Fei-Fei
Jin at the University
of Hawai'i at Mānoa Atmospheric
Currently, I am a contributing author in Working
Group I of the upcoming IPCC
Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) and a member of
the upcoming CLIVAR research focus group "Tropical basin
interaction" (starting in 2020).
