My work is focused on the overlapping nature of weather and climate. While it is true that climate is the statistics of weather, the interpretation of the statistics is subtle - especially when extreme events are involved. After my Math Masters, I chose to study Atmospheric science because I knew it had rich questions about geophysical fluid dynamics. However, I soon learned that there are interesting issues related to applied math and many opportunities for utilizing scientific programming.
The work that I pursue is applicable to near-term weather hazard preparedness and long-term climate adaptation. I am lucky to be in a field in which I get to pursue unique physics problems while simultaneously working to help solve real-life problems that impact society.
