Research Statement

I am interested in climate dynamics - especially feedback processes, climate change processes, and interactions between climate system components. My research work includes evaluation of observational data and evaluation of model data from sources ranging from linear stochastic difference equations to fully coupled global climate models. My specific research areas include the relationship between sea ice dynamics and atmospheric circulation variability, Pacific atmosphere-ocean feedback, the role of tropospheric Rossby wave breaking in the North Atlantic Oscillation and Northern Annular Mode, and historical trends in the position and strength of jet streams
