Curriculum Vitae


My research focuses on understanding both the statistical and physical relationships between climate, acting on seasonal to decadal timescales, and daily weather variability. Generally, my research endeavors fall into the categories of large-scale climate physics, stochastic physics, probability theory, data science, and everywhere in between. Topics of interest naturally include predictability, spatiotemporal scaling, and non-Gaussian and power-law statistical distributions, particularly with a focus on the most tangible aspects of weather: temperature, precipitation, and wind.
