Interests:
My research is fundamental in nature and focuses on the physical and dynamical mechanisms that govern the spatial and temporal evolution of large-scale atmospheric circulation systems. My research involves combining observations with advanced mathematical techniques to study climate dynamics, tropical- midlatitude interactions, stability of geophysical fluid flows, atmospheric waves, and interactions among radiation, ozone and dynamics in the stratosphere. I am also exploring the intersection of art and science through photography. Among my current art/science projects is
