A graduate of Pennsylvania State University in 2016 with a B.Sc. in meteorology, I then went on to attend the University of Southampton / NOC as an exchange student. I completed my Ph.D. at the University of South Carolina in Marine Sciences in 2019 under the guidance of Prof. Subra Bulusu. During my Ph.D., I was awarded the NASA-South Carolina Space Grant Graduate Fellowship and was awarded the Breakthrough Graduate Scholar at the University of South Carolina in 2019. Following, this led me to an opportunity to work with Prof. Alexey Fedorov, Prof. Eric Guilyardi, and Dr. Juliette Mignot at the Laboratoire de l’Océanographie et du Climat in Paris, France as a postdoctoral associate. After nearly four years in Paris, I have joined Prof. Alexey Fedorov at Yale University as a postdoctoral associate to continue our work on large-scale tropical teleconnections, ocean circulation, and Arctic sea ice.
My research focuses on the use of model simulations to understand ocean circulation, variability, and air-sea interaction processes within the polar regions. The current research project is concentrated on Arctic and North Atlantic circulation variability, investigating atmospheric teleconnections to the subpolar North Atlantic region and the tropics through launching a controlled experiment of nudging the tropical Indian Ocean sea surface temperature. Additional experiments include investigating the impact of sea ice reduction (changing sea ice albedo) on climate variability, analyzing the multi-decadal-to-centennial variability in the IPSL coupled models (Institu Pierre-Simon Laplace), and understanding the dynamics of ENSO under a warming climate. More recent projects include experiments on a machine-assisted tuning of the atmospheric model for the coupled climate model IPSL-CM6, the sensitivity of the North Atlantic ocean to cooling of the upper-stratosphere, and the sensitivity and stability of Atlantic meridional overturning circulation under anthropogenic warming. Additional contributions are made in the IPSL CMIP6 (Coupled model intercomparison project) development and extending the pre-Industrial control experiment.
