My research focuses on climate dynamics, e.g., ocean-atmosphere interaction, stratosphere-troposphere interactions, storm track dynamics, wave-mean flow interactions, (regional) climate variability and change, as well as their impacts and potential for long-term predicability. My research interests also include asymptotic methods, model hierarchies, teleconnection patterns, interdisciplinary studies, and communicating climate change. For more see my Website.
