My research primarily involves the Earth's climate: how it functions and how it changes. I have a particular interest in what role the ocean has in controlling variability in the Earth's climate. This has led me to work on ocean and 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.
