Spatiotemporal deep neural nets for extreme event prediction
Hierarchical clustering of geospatial data
Meta-analysis of historic marine heatwave events
My broad research interests are in large-scale climate dynamics, climate variability, air-sea interactions, extreme events, and weather prediction.
Characterizing the probability of marine heatwaves using the statistical relationships between event size, duration, and intensity.

Mixed layer heat budget
PIRATA ocean buoys shed light on what controls the seasonal cycle in the southeast tropical Atlantic Ocean; a region where many climate models fail. We undertake a thorough investigation of the components controlling the seasonal mixed layer temperature balance.
