I have a broad set of research interests that generally focus on understanding mechanisms of climate variability and climate change, interactions between weather and climate, and global and regional impacts of climate change. In support of these research interests I use observational analyses, designed experiments using models of varying complexity, simple and advanced statistical techniques, and theoretical analyses. Currently, my research focuses on coupled ocean atmosphere interactions and their contribution to tropical Pacific and Atlantic variability, subseasonal-to-seasonal (S2S) predictability, statistical downscaling for regional climate, and development and application of statistical models for understanding climate variability.
