About the photo: March 26, 2014 storm. 4x more powerful then Hurricane Sandy.
My research primarily involves the Earth's climate: how it functions and how it changes.
I have a particular interest in long term internal variability of the climate and
how climate change interacts with urban climate.
I develop coupled climate models and conduct research into the
computational, mathematical and theoretical issues involved in their construction.
Currently I'm working on
2009 Argonne Open House presentation on climate modeling.
- Energy Exascale Earth System Model
I'm one of the leaders of multi-lab project to build a new climate model designed to tackle important DOE
problems and run on the latest advanced hardware.
- The Model Coupling Toolkit. I'm the
main developer of a
toolkit for constructing coupled models. MCT is the basis of the coupler for several leading climate
models including E3SM, the
Community Earth System Model., and various European models coupled with
- I'm participating in the Array of Things
project to deploy a new type of sensor network in urban areas which will help us better
understand the characteristics of urban heat islands.
- The Fast Ocean Atmosphere Model. I'm the
lead developer of this fully coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation model.
