Research Interests<Atmospheric dynamics, climate-cloud interactions, remote instrumentation, and climate change./h3>
I am interested in understanding how the Earth’s atmosphere works. Being a little more specific, my research focuses on changes in the global circulation in the lowest 20 kilometers of the atmosphere, and accompanying changes in cloudiness. I enjoy using both climate models and satellite data in my work. I am also currently co-chair of the US CLIVAR Working Group on the Width of the Tropics.
