Research Description
Most of my research during my PhD focused on improving our understanding of the large scale circulation in the atmosphere, focusing on storm tracks. More recently, I am interested in integrating machine learning and causal inference methods into climate science. One such example that I find particularly interesting, is using machine learning to improve convection parametrization schemes. A machine learning convection scheme has the potential to reduce precipitation and temperature uncertainties in a global warming scenario.
