More about my research
Climate variability is critical to understand the natural variability of the climate system in order to address climate change due to ‘anthropogenic’ forcing. I use models, primarily Global Climate Models (GCMs), and observations in my research. One may see some interesting relationship in the observations and then use a model to try to understand the ‘mechanism’ behind this behavior. The climate is a very complex system and each bit of research we do serves to unravel a small piece of (or sometimes complicate) the climate puzzle.
