Extreme climate events under human-driven global change

Assistant Research Professor

UT Institute for Geophysics, University of Texas at Austin

I am an Assistant Research Professor at the UT Institute for Geophysics at the University of Texas at Austin. I study the impact of climate variability and human activity on the characteristics of extreme climate events, specifically extreme fire weather and extreme precipitation. I use observational datasets and large ensemble GCM simulations to quantify changes and underlying uncertainties of extreme climate events and compounding events under a warming climate. 

Interested in working with me on climate change and variability, extreme climate events, and/or extreme event impacts? Get in touch for postdoctoral, graduate, or undergraduate opportunities! (Graduate students will be part of the MS or PhD programs in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences in the Jackson School of Geosciences.)
