Academic interests

  • Energy System Geophysics
  • Hydrology and Energy Transport in the Earth System
  • Arctic and Cryospheric Systems
  • Aerosols and Radiative Forcing Impacts to Hydrologic Systems

My research group focuses on Geophysical Systems with efforts focused on energy and energy transport, weather, and climate processes for energy and water resource evaluation. We develop models and analytical tools focused on Energy Systems and coupling to climate forcing and variability. Projects are based internationally in the United States, India, Europe, Greenland and Svalbard.
