I'm an atmospheric and climate scientist studying climate variability and change, atmospheric dynamics, and terrestrial carbon cycle dynamics. In my research I combine observations, theory, and numerical modeling to advance our understanding of the Earth system. You can read more about my research projects under Research.

My current research focuses on developing methods to estimate CO2 emissions and uptake using primarily satellite observations. Specifically, I use data assimilation and inverse modeling techniques to infer regional-scale CO2 emissions and uptake from both natural and anthropogenic sources and sinks. Such methods are useful to study the natural carbon cycle and independently estimate anthropogenic fossil fuel emissions.

I'm also interested in studying climate change in the Arctic and what implications it has on mid-latitude climate variability and weather extremes.

I obtained my PhD from The Pennsylvania State University in 2018, and currently work as a Researcher in the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science at Lund University in Sweden.

News and activities

  • 2021-04-02 New co-authored paper on the uncertainty of Arctic warming in CMIP6 models, see Publications for more information.
  • 2021-03-09 I have recently reiceved a STINT grant to work on "High-resolution carbon cycle data assimilation with multiple satellite observations" with researchers from Nanjing University. More information available from STINT's website.
  • 2021-03-09 New co-authored publication about the regionalization of precipitation over the Tibetan Plateau. Head over to Publications for more information.
  • 2020-09-19 The website has been updated! The site is now powered by the Pelican framework, which makes it easier for me to add new content and keep the site up-to-date. It should also be faster and easier to navigate than the previous site.
