Description of Scientific Projects

My overall research goals are to understand climate variability in the modern era and its impact on society, by combining analysis of observational data sets and numerical models of the atmosphere and ocean. The particular focus of my work is to understand the interaction between the oceans and the atmosphere and how it shapes changes in climate on interannual to decadal time scales. In this context I have studied the phenomena of the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), the interannual variability in the Atlantic intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) and the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO).
