Current and Recent Research
- I am currently investigating the interplay of rate and noise-induced tipping in low order dynamical system models. I have looked at rate and noise-induced tipping (separately and together) in model problems, a tropical cyclone model, an oceanic carbon cycle model, and in an infectious disease model.
- I participated in an internship at NCICS (North Carolina Institute for Climate Studies) during Summer 2021, working on the project: Evaluation of Vegetation Status in Earth system models Using Satellite Climate Data Records. I worked with another intern to validate global leaf area index model predictions. This internship has been extended through the academic year.
- I participated in a NSF funded six-week Dynamics and Data in the Covid-19 Pandemic workshop during Summer 2020. I spent the summer studying the spread of Covid-19 and various epidemiological models. I collaborated in a team with three other graduate students to develop a dynamical systems model that looked at the effects of pathogen mutation and seasonal forcing associated with zoonotic spillover.
- I participated in the MCRN (Mathematics of Climate Research Network) summer school and academic year engagement program. In our project, we explored a mathematical definition of the Spring Predictability Barrier of El Niño. This work was presented at SIAM MPE20. Click here for an abstract.
