I am a Research Scientist III in the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University.
I have been involved in the evaluation of general circulation models (GCMs) since 1996.
My research focuses on the representation of convection in GCMs, with an emphasis on convective variability and its interaction with larger scale atmospheric motions.
I'm especially interested in coupled ocean-atmosphere feedbacks within the Madden-Julian oscillation.
