My expertise is in next generation climate simulation, using new algorithms (cloud superparameterization) and new computing techniques (machine learning) to study clouds and their interaction with climate and weather, in high fidelity.
- Deep learning looks like it might be a viable pathway to improving the representation of complex cloud-radiation physics in climate prediction models; this could revolutionize our science.
- The physics behind mysterious patterns of rainfall in today’s atmosphere can now be explored numerically – including the Madden-Julian Oscillation in the tropics.
- Answers to important questions like “how will it rain in my future climate?” and “what is the low cloud feedback to climate change?” may soon emerge from next-gen climate simulation technology.
