Fields of interest
Climate variability and change with a focus on hydroclimate, global and regional climate modeling, uncertainty quantification and emergent constraints, predictability, detection and attribution, extreme and compound events, linking extreme events to impacts (water resources, drought, wildfire)
Description of scientific projects
- I'm most interested in co-developing a project with an interested and motivated postdoc that is bringing in their own ideas; nonetheless, below are a few project ideas that I'm eager to work on with someone in the coming years:
- Emergent constraints on regional hydroclimate projections (background reading: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41558-019-0639-x)
- Process-oriented evaluation of internal climate variability in large ensemble model simulations (background reading: https://esd.copernicus.org/articles/11/491/2020/esd-11-491-2020.html)
- Separating dynamic and thermodynamic drivers of compound events and their impacts (background reading: https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1029/2018GL078312)
