About me

Welcome to my webpage! I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Illinois Chicago. I also hold a joint appointment position at the Environmental Science Division of Argonne National Laboratory. I utilize varieties of climate models and observations to better understand climate dynamics, especially processes that impact tropical and mid-latitude precipitation.

Research interest

  • Regional and Earth system modelling

  • Monsoon Climates

  • Tropical and mid-latitude climate

  • Extreme events: mechanisms and attribution

  • Climate change and climate variability: mechanisms and causes

  • Climate Impacts:agriculture, water resources, air quality, and health

  • Climate change resilience
