I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the High Meadows Environmental Institute at Princeton University, working with Dr. Gabriel Vecchi. My research focuses on how tropical cyclone frequency changes with the climate. During my PhD, I studied 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 I am allergic to seafood. Tropical cyclones 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 natural disasters.
