\nɐɗɪɹ dʒivɪndʒi\

I study the physics of clouds, radiation, and climate. I am currently an Associate Research Scholar in the Princeton AOS program, and am also affiliated with GFDL. Prior to this I held post-doctoral positions in Princeton Geosciences as well as Princeton AOS, and I got my PhD in 2016 from UC Berkeley working with David Romps.

Before turning to climate science I studied mathematical physics for many years, during which I authored the textbook An Introduction to Tensors and Group Theory for Physicists. See the book page for more information.

I welcome correspondence at nadirj@princeton.edu.
