My research interests focus on untangling fundamental drivers of climate variability and climate change. I concentrate primarily on how different atmosphere-ocean processes generate large-scale changes in atmospheric and oceanic circulation and temperature. Recently, I am interested in the role of the ocean in setting the pace of climate change as well as how El Niño and La Niña impacts on North America will change in a future climate. I test my hypotheses by designing experiments that require computationally-intensive complex climate models and observationally-based datasets.
