About me

‚ÄčI am a CIMES postdoctoral research associate at Princeton and NOAA GFDL (2021.8-present), working with Dr. Lucas Harris and Tom Knutson in the FV3 team. Before joining Princeton, I did my PhD with Prof. Dan Chavas in the Dept. of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at Purdue University (2016-2021).  

My research interests are primarily directed toward understanding the physics of the landfalling and post-landfall tropical cyclones with idealized experiments and real-world observations. I'm pursuing a research career that communicates our physical understanding of inland hurricanes to a broader community, aiming to improve our operational forecasts and enhance the risk resilience to high-impact weather.
