Alum | Atmospheric Sciences

I am a postdoc at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory studying the role of clouds in our current and future climate system. I did my PhD research at UW in the Dept. of Atmospheric Sciences with Professor Robert Wood and Professor Chris Bretherton, studying stratocumulus clouds off the coast of Chile and how they interacted with aerosol particles. Now I am studying cloud feedbacks in climate models and what controls the global water cycle. While at UW, I helped develop a couple lab assignments for the PCC's UWHS Climate Science curriculum. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
