Description of scientific projects
Research activities in my group are aimed at understanding the fundamental dynamics of important processes and circulations in the tropical atmosphere. Undergoing projects, for instance, explore the role of elevated topography in the South and East Asian monsoons, and the response of monsoons to climate changes. We use a variety of tools, including observations, and idealized and comprehensive climate models.
