Environmental Fellow, Harvard University Center for the Environment
I am a climate scientist with a focus on atmospheric physics and global warming. In my research, I use a hierarchy of tools — from pencil-and-paper theories to computational fluid dynamics simulations — to connect the basic building blocks of atmospheric physics to the emergent phenomena of climate. I am particularly interested in clouds, radiative transfer, and severe weather.
Just in time for AGU, our new paper about the state-dependence of equilibrium climate sensitivity is out now in GRL! Coauthored with Nadir Jeevanjee.

What would constitute a "radiative antidote" to CO2? Check out our new paper in GRL, which shows that attenuation of sunlight in near-infrared wavelengths can offset the effects of CO2 on temperature and precipitation. Coauthored with Nick Lutsko and David Keith.
