Current Research Overview:

The scope of my scientific inquiry involves the diagnosis and interpretation of processes operating within the climate system.  My prior and current research foci include: (i) assessing the controls on tropical precipitation and its spatiotemporal variability; (ii) diagnosing the pathways through which the land surface and atmosphere interact in observations and models; (iii) analyzing the distributions of trace constituents and their transport in the troposphere; and (iv) developing and applying novel approaches for the analysis of precipitation and other climate variables.  To explore these foci, I make use of a diverse array of observational and reanalysis data sets, a suite of diagnostic approaches, and a vertical hierarchy of models ranging from process-based analytic prototypes to full-blown general circulation models.
