I am an NSF Post-doctoral Fellow working with Eric Maloney and Elizabeth Barnes at Colorado State University using machine learning, explainable artificial intelligence (XAI), and a variety of climate models to predict and understand the tropical atmosphere.


I hold a Ph.D. in Applied Math and Atmospheric Science from Columbia University, advised by Adam Sobel.
