precipitation extremes and climate dynamics


I am interested in using observations, reanalysis and numerical modeling to investigate the impacts, characteristics and climatology of extreme precipitation events. I use process-based studies for model evaluation and employ simple experiments to develop a mechanistic understanding of weather extremes and their interaction with climate.


Join the group!

If you have a background in the physical sciences, physics, engineering or related fields and are looking for an undergraduate research opportunity, or if you are interested in joining the group as a graduate student or postdoc, please email me. I am always looking for enthusiastic and creative people to work with.

Students who are interested in joining the group should apply to the Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering graduate program. The deadline to start the following is mid-December. I'm happy to discuss potential projects in advance.

If you are interested in working with me as a postdoc, please contact me. There are a number of postdoctoral fellowships available (usually in the fall) that we can target.
