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.
