Currently, I'm the Chief Scientist at ClimaCell, a weather technology company. In this role, I oversee the company's R&D; portfolio with the exception of activities focused on NWP applications on cloud-based HPC. The team of "atmospheric data scientists" I train and lead - physical scientists with backgrounds in the geosciences (especially meteorology) but strong complementary skills in programming, software engineering, data science, and machine learning - develops and operationalizes the company's core catalog of real-time and forecast weather data products.
Formerly I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate jointly with the Center for Global Change Science and the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology working with Noelle Selin and Susan Solomon. My main research interest was the interactions between aerosols, clouds, and climate, particularly the multi-scale chain of physical and chemical processes through which the three feedback on each other. In much of this work, I focused on the role of climate variability in understanding and anticipating changes to air quality and pollution extremes, with a focus on informing policymaking.
I'm also interested in science/climate policy, scientific software, open/reproducible science, and classical violin. Please check out my presence on social media below, or peruse my scholarly works on ORCID, ResearchGate, and Google Scholar.
