Associate Professor of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering
Earth's climate system is characterized by complicated and fascinating interactions between physical, chemical, and biological processes. My current research ambitions lie in understanding processes that govern cryosphere–climate interaction and feedback. Such processes include the physics of snow melt, atmospheric transport and processing of aerosols, large-scale energy transport, snow–vegetation interaction, and radiative transfer in the atmosphere and cryosphere. We strive to study these interactions using a combination of numerical modeling, remote sensing observations, and experimental studies.
Students interested in researching these and related topics are welcome to contact me about potential graduate studies.
