Fields of interest
I am interested in climate change from the perspective of how it has unfolded over historical and geologic time, as well as improving prediction of future changes.
Description of scientific projects
Projects my group is engaged in include improving understanding of why and how ocean heat content has changed over the last several centuries; exploring how surface-atmosphere hydrologic coupling can be altered; and attempting to better quantify how climate change will influence agricultural production. Foremost, I am interested in projects where quantitative exploration of observations can be merged with other sources of scientific understanding to better elucidate climate system behavior.
