I am a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in the Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics (APAM), working with Lorenzo Polvani. I moved to Columbia in November 2021 after completing my PhD at the University of Reading, UK, where I also studied as an undergraduate. I work on stratosphere-troposphere coupling, large-scale climate dynamics and variability, and subseasonal-to-seasonal prediction. I am also Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Royal Meteorological Society journal Weather.
