I study the physics of clouds, radiation, and climate. I am currently a Harry Hess post-doctoral fellow in the Princeton Geosciences department, and am also affiliated with Princeton AOS and GFDL. I got my PhD in May 2016 from UC Berkeley, where I worked 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


Feb. 2019   A second paper on anvil clouds, entitled "FAT or FiTT: Are anvil clouds or the tropopause temperature-invariant?", led by colleague Jacob T. Seeley, also now published in Geophysical Research Letters.   [Article webpage] [PDF] [SI]

Jan. 2019   I spoke at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory as well as Princeton University on "Simple models of the H2O and CO2 greenhouse effects".   [slides] [video]

Jan. 2019   Our work entitled "Formation of tropical anvil clouds by slow evaporation", led by colleague Jacob T. Seeley, now published in Geophysical Research Letters.   [Article webpage] [PDF] [SI]

Dec. 2018   I presented on "Climate science: how do we know what we know?" at Hunter College in New York City, organized by Professor Randye Rutberg.

Oct. 2018   My work entitled "Mean precipitation change from a deepening troposphere", done in collaboration with David Romps, was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.   [Article webpage] [PDF] [SI]
