I am a physical geographer and climatologist investigating the interactions between global climate and the hydrologic cycle at regional scales.

I am currently a researcher at the University of Edinburgh School of Geosciences, I am working with Gabriele Hegerl on the ERC-funded project Transitioning Into The ANthropocene (TITAN): Learning about the climate system from data of the 19th and early 20th century. From 2014 to 2017 I was a post-doctoral researcher at the Laboratoire d’Océanographie et du Climat : Expérimentations et Approches Numériques (LOCEAN) at the Pierre and Marie Curie / Sorbonne University in Paris.

I completed my Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley in the Department of Geography in 2014, working with John C. H. Chiang.

Research areas: interhemispheric temperature contrast | tropical hydrologic cycle | sea surface salinity | decadal climate variability | climate change attribution
