I am a Visiting Scientist at MIT’s Parsons Lab, which is part of the Civil and Environmental engineering department, and Director of Seasonal Forecasting at AER (Atmospheric and Environmental Research). I am currently working on the impacts of snow cover and sea ice variability on winter climate. I am also interested in accelerated Arctic warming and its influence on extreme mid-latitude weather and applying novel statistical techniques to subseasonal to seasonal prediction. I am also interested in decadal temperature trends and explaining those trends with large scale climate models. I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University and was also a post-doc at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
