I am interested in studying gravity waves and their interaction with the large-scale
atmospheric circulation. Gravity waves are small-scale atmospheric disturbances, which exist in a variety of shapes and sizes, and have far-reaching impacts on the momentum balance of the planet. At Stanford, I am excited to explore the properties of these waves and develop scalable data-driven parameterizations to accurately represent these waves in climate prediction models. In the past, I studied the properties of strong gravity waves generated over South American Andes and explored their contribution towards the Antarctic ozone hole recovery, using a combination of observations and high-resolution models. I am also interested in studying atmospheric transport of trace gases using a combination of theory and climate modeling. When I am not working, I enjoy biking, hiking and playing board games.
