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.
