My research interests are in the physics of rainstorms and atmospheric circulations in a changing climate. I am particularly interested in what environmental factors control the temporal and spatial scales of rainstorms, how will the characteristic scales of rainstorms change in a warmer climate, and how the collective effects of individual rainstorms, in turn, shape Earth's climate. 


Dec. 2019: Our group is seeking an ambitious and creative postdoctoral scholar to study atmospheric convection and climate change. Please see Openings for details. 

Oct. 2019: I received a David and Lucile Packard Fellowship. Please see the press releases at the Packard FoundationUC Davis, LBNL, and Twitter.  

Nov. 2019: Our new paper "Size of the Atmospheric Blocking Events: Scaling Law and Response to Climate Change"​ was published in Geophysical Research Letters.

Oct. 2019: Our new paper "Enhanced Equatorial Warming Causes Deep-Tropical Contraction and Subtropical Monsoon Shift" was published in Nature Climate Change

Aug. 2019: Our new paper "Convective Heating Leads to Self-Aggregation by Generating Available Potential Energy" was published in Geophysical Research Letters. See research page for a plain-language summary.
