My research group develops and uses climate models to help build understanding of how the planet works. We study everything from rainbands and winds in the tropics to temperature and cloud patterns in the polar regions. I teach classes for non-scientist undergraduates up to graduate students on topics such as geophysical fluid dynamics, climate modeling, and climate change. I'm also interested in public outreach and participate in groups that give talks, make videos, and create video games about climate science.
