In general, I am interested in how climate change and natural variability impact the energy balance of the atmosphere. Currently, I am interested in the super greenhouse effect and the relative roles of factors which are important for generating this phenomenon.

My research interests include:

  • Atmospheric Radiation and Radiative Transfer
  • Radiative Forcing and Climate Sensitivity
  • Convection
  • Detection and Attribution of Climate Change
