About me

I am a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Geophysical Sciences at The University of Chicago in Chicago, Illinois working with Noboru Nakamura.

I recently received my PhD from the Department of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana with Paul Staten.

My research tries to understand the role of the large-scale atmospheric circulation in the climate system, with a focus on the jet stream. I am particularly interested in how the jet stream influences extremes in the water cycle, as well as why the jet’s position fluctuates on monthly-to-yearly timescales.

I’m also a co-developer for the PyTropD library for identifying major features in the atmospheric circulation and comparing metrics of tropical widening. In my free time, I enjoy reading, cycling, training Pokémon, and walking my dog.
