I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Dr. Gabriel Vecchi's group at the High Meadows Environmental Institute at Princeton University. My research focuses on how tropical cyclones change with the climate, building on physical theories and applying to societally relevant problems. During my PhD, I explored a range of topics using theory and modeling, including the interaction between moist convection and baroclinic cyclones, as well as the interaction between Rossby waves and midlatitude jets.  

Outside of research, I enjoy water sports even though I get seasick easily. I grew up near the ocean but was allergic to seafood. Typhoons played a big part in my childhood. The more I learn about them, the more I am humbled by the wonder of nature, and the more I hope to contribute to a society better prepared for natrual disasters.
