I am a Miller Research Fellow hosted by the Department of Earth & Planetary Science at UC Berkeley. I completed my Ph.D. at the California Insitute of Technology in 2014, advised by Andrew Ingersoll. My research is to develop a unified understanding of how the tropical atmosphere works, and the key is to understand moist convection‒deep cumulus clouds and thunderstorms. My Ph.D. thesis was focused on the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO), a planetary scale month-long rainfall pattern in the tropics. I am now thinking about convective phenomena at other temporal and spatial scales, including the mesoscale cloud clusters and the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ).
