Research

I graduated from Princeton and am now a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Advanced Study Program at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Here is my active website: https://staff.ucar.edu/users/shivr

My PhD research at Princeton studied how the energy balance of Earth is altered by natural variability in the climate system and anthropogenic forcing. I used satellite observations and climate models to understand the mechanisms responsible for short-term and long-term changes in Earth's reflection of solar radiation and emission of infrared radiation.
