I'm a PostDoc on a Humboldt fellowship at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, working with Jochem Marotzke and Bjorn Stevens on ocean-atmosphere interactions. I graduated in Reto Knutti's group at the Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science at ETH Zürich and wrote my Master's thesis at GFDL in Princeton with Mike Winton.
I'm interested in how the ocean influences atmospheric feedbacks on large scales, and stores and redistributes heat. I like thinking about first-order controls on Earth’s climate and the concept of climate forcings. I'm also interested in deep time paleo climate, internal variability, and the theory and sociology of science.
I'm coordinating a model intercomparison of millennia long simulations of global coupled Atmosphere-Ocean Models, LongRunMIP, together with
In August 2020, I am starting a faculty position in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at Colorado State University. I am searching for Master's and PhD students interested ocean-atmosphere interaction on large spatial and temporal scales. Please contact me for more information.
