I am an Assistant Professor at UCLA, joint between the Department of Statistics and the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability.

Previously, I was an Applied Scientist at Descartes Labs in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and an Advanced Study Program post-doctoral fellow at the National Center for Atmospheric Research working with Clara Deser. I completed my PhD, advised by Peter Huybers, in 2015 in the Earth and Planetary Sciences department at Harvard University.

My research focuses on developing physical and statistical models for climate variability and change, with a particular interest in the weather-climate continuum. My most recent work is on the role of internal variability versus anthropogenic forcing in multidecadal climate trends, as well as changes in and causes of extreme temperature events.
