I’m Nash (they/them/theirs), a postgrad associate in EPS! I work with John Wettlaufer on stochastic differential equation models of paleoclimate data. Specifically, I work with the 800,000-year EPICA ice core record of carbon dioxide, methane, and temperature. For my senior thesis, I did multifractal analysis and multidimensional stochastic model fitting of EPICA data, and I am continuing that work now with the study of stochastic resonance modeling of glacial cycles.
I graduated from Yale College in 2021 with a B.A in Applied Mathematics, in the Earth & Planetary Sciences track. During college, I interned in the Earth Sciences division at NASA GSFC, worked with Mary-Louise Timmermans in EPS on Arctic Ocean data analysis, and was a founding member of the Applied Mathematics DSAC (Departmental Student Advisory Committee). I also was a staffer at the LGBTQ Office, president of Trans@Yale (the undergraduate organization for transgender & nonbinary students), and was involved in climate justice activism with the EJC.
In the long term, I hope to do climate science work either in mathematics/complex systems/fluid dynamics, or in urban architecture/sea level rise/environmental justice/climate adaptation. I also hope to get re-involved in community organizing for queer/trans & racial/economic & climate justice issues, and to eventually release some guitar, cello, and/or electronic music.
